Discovery Health Medical Scheme’s (“DHMS”) rating is supported by the scheme’s very strong membership profile (market leading position in the open schemes industry), coupled with a strong financial profile.
DHMS’ very large membership base and diverse risk pool is viewed to be a material rating strength.

Additional Information

DHMS is the largest open medical scheme, representing 57% of total open scheme principal members in FY19. This is underpinned by consistently high member retention, sound new member uptake and limited intermediary and client concentration.GCR views the scheme’s very strong operational framework and contribution scale as key contributors to the attainment of sound aggregated net healthcare results, and absorption of operational volatility.
