Bestmed continues to focus on the promotion of initiatives designed exclusively for our members’ health and wellbeing, with the Bestmed Tempo wellness programme core to this activity.
As the services within the Tempo wellness programme have expanded, we have taken the opportunity to review the services delivered by external partners to ensure that there are no duplications or conflicts in the benefits provided.
As a result of this process, we have agreed with our affiliated rewards partner, Justrewards, that the ‘Extra Care’ benefit currently provided to all Bestmed members will no longer be available in its current format from the 1 February 2020. Bestmed members will continue to qualify for double points at Dis-chem and Clicks pharmacies via direct arrangements with our business partners, while Pick ‘n Pay pharmacy rewards will no longer be available. Please be assured that any Bestmed membership cards previously linked to any of the aforementioned pharmacies will continue to operate and generate the additional rewards.
Although ongoing legal services will continue to be provided for matters in course of assessment and litigation until resolution, the legal assistance service will no longer be available.
The Justrewards programme remains open to members who have or wish to elect the premium ‘Lifestyle’ tier at R149 per month.
