Umvuzo Health is a restricted scheme that was registered with the Council of Medical Schemes on 1 July 2004. Umvuzo is only available to groups of employers and their respective employees within specific industries and sectors.

Umvuzo, the Zulu word for reward, remains at the heart of our company philosophy.


With living costs in general — and healthcare costs in particular — escalating continually, Umvuzo Health’s main objective is to reward its loyal, hard-working members. Umvuzo does this by offering them an affordable, yet reliable, medical aid with the added benefit of private hospital care.

After 2 weeks of travelling for the various Benefit Launches we had, we can proudly say our members were very happy to hear about our Benefit Changes and low Increases. We started off in Gauteng, where we had our first launch at Gallagher estate in Midrand, we then went on to visit our members in Randfontein at Bundu Inn. The next week we travelled to Mpumalanga, where we hosted our guests at Indlela Country Lodge, we also went to Eldorado Hotel in Kuruman as well as Diggers Inn in Welkom. It was such an honour to get to answer some of the questions our members had and just to see the love countrywide that our members have and that we can assure them how important each and every one is!

"I knew nothing about this medical aid, though I work in the medical aid industry. We used it yesterday when my 6-year old son was sick without any hiccups! Thank you Umvuzo Health. "
