Monitor your health
Have your blood glucose, cholesterol, BMI, and blood pressure measured in one go as a combination test at Dis-Chem or Clicks. Your test results will automatically upload to your health record on Medihelp's system and you can access your health record via HealthPrint, Medihelp's free wellness programme for members, by logging in to the Member Zone – Medihelp’s secured website – and the Medihelp app for members. Once your health test results have been uploaded on HealthPrint, you get an extra R490 to spend on self-medication at network pharmacies.
