The Government Employees Medical Scheme (GEMS) is the largest restricted medical scheme in the country with a principal membership of over 760 000 and two million beneficiaries.


GEMS was established with a mandate to provide efficient, cost-effective and equitable healthcare coverage to public service employees.


At the core of its mandate, GEMS seeks to provide all members with access to affordable and comprehensive healthcare. Its vision is to drive transformation in the healthcare industry and retain its position as an excellent, sustainable and effective medical scheme.


GEMS offers six healthcare benefit options that were each designed to help public service employees and their families to get the best possible healthcare at the most affordable rate. 


As South Africa’s largest restricted Scheme, GEMS has the lowest non-healthcare expenditure which means more benefits for members and their beneficiaries. The Scheme’s flagship benefit options, Tanzanite One and Emerald Value Option (EVO), continue to perform exceptionally well, which serves to highlight the outstanding service that GEMS provides to members. This is also evidence of the fact that GEMS remains a member-centric scheme which is deeply connected to the needs of its members. Public service employees on employment levels one to five may qualify for 100% subsidy of their contributions on the Tanzanite One benefit option subject to terms and conditions.


GEMS aims to ensure that contributions remain low to provide access to quality healthcare at the lowest possible rates, while providing rich benefits to its members. The Scheme’s EVO remains its best performing option, as it has the lowest monthly contribution increase among all options, which make sense for members to stay or switch to this option. The option is designed to minimise member exposure to out-of-pocket payments, which remains a major challenge for those who belong to medical schemes. EVO is more affordable because members make use of a network of healthcare providers and nominate a general practitioner of their choice to coordinate their healthcare needs.


GEMS has received accolades from the Institute of Risk Management South Africa for innovative and outstanding risk management. GEMS won the BHFs’ Titanium Award for access to healthcare at the last conference and was recently recognised by the Top Employers Institute as one of the top employers in 2022.

Patients first, always

Universal, the largest independent health and technology company of its kind in South Africa, has been one of the fastest-growing in the healthcare industry over the last decade.

Touching the lives of some 10-million people worldwide, this specialist-integrated healthcare and technology company has a multi-national footprint with offices in South Africa and the United States.  

Owner-managed and run by a hands-on entrepreneurial team with a passion for delivering excellence and a strategic vision for sustainable, appropriate healthcare, Universal is a leader in third party administration, integrated healthcare management, managed care, pharmaceutical benefit management, corporate wellness, insurance, and a variety of novel innovative health technology services developed in Silicon Valley, USA.

Patients come first at Universal, and we always ensure they have access to the best and most appropriate care available. Our personalised healthcare management approach and patient care are what sets us apart. This, together with our sophisticated and proprietary IT systems, patented transaction rules engine and international evidence-based medical protocols is why more than 30 healthcare funds have entrusted us with their members.

The way we conduct our business in healthcare, permeates not only through the benefits offered by every medical scheme we administer and manage – but also in the way we interact with those with whom we come into contact.

Our purpose is to help patients who are ill get better. And, to help those who are well, live healthy lives so they can remain well. We partner with healthcare professionals to practise quality medicine that is both scientific and evidence-based, always with a caring approach. We are committed to being a trusted medical advocate that speaks for patients when they are unable to do so. Our purpose and values resonate through every fibre of our organisation and attention to detail, together with ongoing innovation, ensures that we continue to provide patients with access to world-class healthcare solutions at an affordable price.

Phakamisa v/t [phaga’mi:sa]: IsiZulu for elevate, lift, raise, uplift, upliftment.

Phakamisa is AstraZeneca’s access to healthcare initiative in South Africa.

Through partnerships with multiple healthcare stakeholders we aim to improve the health outcomes for patients in South Africa and reduce the burden of non-communicable diseases on South Africa’s public healthcare system. The Programme specifically addresses early detection of disease, promotion of primary prevention, and access to care.

Phakamisa is delivered through a three-pillared approach – Training, Awareness and Access –  with a current focus on improving breast and prostate cancer management in the public sector.


AstraZeneca is a global innovation driven biopharmaceutical company pushing the boundaries of science to deliver life-changing medicines.


Science can change our vision of the world and how we deal with the diseases that affect us. The future of treatment for many of today’s diseases lies in uncovering disease mechanisms that are newly emerging or are still to be discovered. Science challenges us to push the limits of what is possible to deliver life-changing medicines for patients in Africa.  This is why we put science at the centre of everything we do.


We market medicines that are designed to improve the health and quality of life of patients, focusing on 3 main therapy areas: Respiratory and Immunology; Cardiovascular, Renal and Metabolism (CVRM) with newer treatments in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus being our core strength; and Oncology with targeted and immune-oncology therapies being the future portfolio in cancer management.


We engage extensively with our HCPs, from participation in clinical trials and as part of our sales and marketing work, ensuring that clinicians have the best access to information about our products in order to make appropriate treatment decisions, delivering better patient care.


Our Continent’s future social and economic development will depend on an equitable and inclusive healthcare system that is able to respond to the healthcare needs of all Africans.  At AstraZeneca we are committed to working with governments, policy makers and regulatory bodies across our markets on healthcare reform to deliver a sustainable solution that ensures patients encounter fewer barriers to treatment.


Our commitment to improve health outcomes for African patients extends far beyond our medicines. We offer programmes that advance patient health and access along the care continuum and provide reliable support networks.

When we see an opportunity for change we seize it and make it happen, because an opportunity no matter how small can be the start of something big.

The Heart of Rand Mutual Assurance

Caring | Compassionate | Compensation – Since 1894

Rand Mutual Assurance (RMA) was founded in 1894 by three mining companies as a mutual assurance company to insure and administer workmen’s compensation benefits.

It was incorporated as a public company, and, as a mutual association, all policy holders automatically became shareholders. Years later, the South African government implemented legislation to regulate workers’ compensation benefits and RMA was issued a licence by the then Minister of Labour in terms of Section 30 of the Compensation for Occupational Injuries and Diseases (COID) Act (Act 130 of 1993). The licence allowed RMA to continue providing and administering workers’ compensation to the mining sector (Class IV) and was later extended to include employers from the iron, steel, artificial limbs, galvanising, garages, metal, and related industries (Class XIII) on 1 March 2015.

Boasting a history of 128 years of existence, we’ve redefined our reason to exist and purpose as: We believe that workers are the heartbeat of the economy therefore, we pioneer unique value for money social insurance solutions to support their life’s journey.

Given our purpose, we have a significant opportunity to enhance social insurance and therefore partner with Healthcare Providers (HCP) and employer groups seeking to give employees a full suite of health, wellness, and insurance services.

The Healthcare Forensic Management Unit (HFMU) is an information and resource sharing group which enjoys the participation of the majority of medical schemes, administrators, management and administration entities and some insurers. It is co-ordinated and administrated under the auspices of The Board of Healthcare Funders of Southern Africa and is unique in that it is the first initiative of its kind within the healthcare industry.

The core focus of this unit is to facilitate a unified approach with regards to fraud in the medical schemes environment. This is achieved through sharing of information using the HFMU Online Portal. The HFMU Online Portal is a secure contributory database where participants share information on FWA investigations so that other participants are alerted of FWA activity in relation to a specific beneficiary and / or healthcare service provider. This serves inter alia as a preventative strategy to other medical schemes to investigate a similar FWA trend so captured.

The HFMU also works with various stakeholders such as Provincial Departments of Health, The SIU and is a member of the Global Health Care Anti-Corruption Forum.
