Mission, Vision and Values

We consistently focus on providing client-centric solutions.

Our primary objective is to offer an exceptional value proposition to our members, which also protects the long-term sustainability of the scheme.



Momentum Medical Scheme exists for one reason - to ensure sustainable access to cost-effective healthcare for our growing pool of members.



We aim to be the open scheme of choice for all consumers of healthcare in South Africa. We will achieve this through the rigorous application of our values.



Service, innovation, fairness, integrity and compassion.



We uphold the highest standard of ethical conduct in all of our activities.

This means that all business shall be conducted in a transparent manner, consistent with the values of honesty, integrity, fairness, respect, and responsibility. Furthermore, we aim to comply with all applicable laws and regulations. To this end a Trustee Code of Conduct, Committee Member Code of Conduct and an Employee and Representative Code of Conduct have been formulated to strengthen the Scheme’s ethical behaviour by establishing its responsibility for ethical conduct, outlining specific obligations, providing guidance to recognise and deal with ethical issues, and establishing mechanisms to report unethical conduct. Every Trustee, Committee Member, employee and representative of the Scheme, has a responsibility to understand and comply fully with the relevant Code of Conduct and all other policies of the Scheme.
