  • Namdeb Medical Aid Scheme members are covered for two (2) telephonic consultations with a doctor.
  • The Namdeb Medical Aid Scheme administrator, Prosperity Health, is no longer accepting cash payments at their offices, in order to curb the spread of the virus. Kindly make payments via EFT or Bank Deposit, and send the proof of payment via email.
