The Litunga benefit option provide affordable primary healthcare services to the lower income group who previously have not had access to subsidised private healthcare. This benefit option focuses on providing treatment and services falling within the scope and context of primary healthcare. If you are a member of this benefit option, you have direct access to a network of contracted general practitioners and registered nurses and to ensure the quality of care provided. The Fund assumes direct responsibility for the network. Litunga provide unlimited cover for day-to-day primary care services as long as you use the designated service provider facilities.

Litunga benefits are not pro-rated with the exception of the optical and dental benefits where sub-limits are applicable.

Please note: If you are currently a member of any of the other NHP benefit options and not used to primary healthcare, we strongly recommend that you do not “buy down” to the Litunga benefit options as your choice of general practitioner, nurse and healthcare facility is restricted.
