The Classic Smart Plan is designed for families as the contributions for child dependants are only 40% of that of main members.

On the Essential Smart Plan, contributions are the same for main members, adult dependants and child dependants. Families on the Essential Smart Plan could be paying more than what they would on the Classic Smart Plan, with less benefits.

New families qualify for mid-year upgrades

From 1 January 2021, Essential Smart Plan members will be able to upgrade to the Classic Smart Plan in the following scenarios:

  • Members who are expecting a baby can upgrade within 90 days of adding the newborn to their membership.

  • Members who add a child dependant to their membership within 3 months of the membership activation can upgrade within 90 days of the child dependant joining the membership.

Discovery will upgrade the membership the month after they receive the request.

Discovery Vitality

A free payment benefit for Vitality members

Vitality clients can now be paid safely by Discovery Bank members using their cellphone numbers. No banking details, no branch codes needed. Discovery Pay is a free benefit for Vitality members, via Discovery Bank.

Discovery Pay enables active Vitality members to receive payments from Discovery Bank clients, regardless of who the Vitality member banks with.

How it works

When a Vitality member’s cellphone number is saved in a Discovery Bank client’s contact list, the Discovery Bank client can pay the Vitality client instantly from their Discovery Bank app. Discovery Bank will securely deposit the funds into the existing linked bank account on record for the Vitality client – without sharing any banking details. It is completely free to receive payments.

Clients will receive an SMS the first time someone pays them, and then they will be asked for a once off authorisation for the payment.

Thereafter, all incoming Discovery Pay payments will automatically be paid into their account. Instead of handling cash, clients can stay safe with digital payments.
