Manned by qualified professional nurses, pharmacist assistants, medical and dental advisors, Managed Healthcare provides the following services:
When you are hospitalised, our resident Patient Care Coordinator will stop by for a visit to offer emotional support or any other fund-related assistance you may require.
We offer a full year of continuous and uninterrupted HIV/AIDS treatment, which is critical for infected individuals to receive. HIV/AIDS patients are urged to register for the programme as soon as possible. Kindly contact one of our AIDS Outreach Programme Case Managers at (061) 375 950.
Members require pre-authorisation from the Fund before being admitted to hospital. The Managed Healthcare Department manages this function.
Chronic medication is repetitive or life-sustaining medicine, usually prescribed for a period of six months or longer. NMC covers medication costs for chronic ailments listed in the Fund’s List of Chronic Conditions up to a maximum limit.
NMC members have 24/7 access to emergency air and road ambulance evacuation services. Life-sustaining conditions that require emergency transport are covered. All authorised air ambulance flights and long distance road ambulance transport services within the SADC region are covered. Contact any of the emergency evacuation service providers for immediate assistance.

The long-term effects of lifestyle diseases on productivity and capital can accumulate unexpected risks and expenses for the members of the Fund and the employer. Our Lifestyle Management Programme is designed to nurture healthy habits in members, regardless of their work environment.

The program promotes the proactive participation of both the individual and the member groups.

  • Preventative Health Care
Our key focus is to empower members and ensure they improve their health, prevent and reduce health risks. Becoming aware of health risks can lead to lifelong goals – healthy habits help prevent certain health conditions, such as heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure, strengthen muscles and bones, reduce body fat and help maintain a healthy weight.

* Members to be screened by registered health professionals.

  • Corporate Lifestyle Management Programme
Lifestyle Management is a vital investment in an employer’s most valuable resource – its people. In the long run, creating a healthier environment reduces staff absenteeism.

Our Lifestyle Management Programme brings routine medical check-ups directly to members, at the premises of the employer. General screenings include cholesterol, Body Mass Index, glucose and hypertension.

Please contact the Lifestyle Management Centre on 061 2876174 or wellness@methealth.com.na for more information or to book a session.

You have calculated your BMI and found your weight range. What does this all mean?

BMI is not the only indicator of health risk.

It is a good gauge of your risk for developing chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, or diabetes. Other factors that may be important to look at when assessing your risk for chronic disease include:

  • Diet
  • Physical Activity
  • Waist Circumference
  • Blood Pressure
  • Blood Sugar Level
  • Cholesterol Level
  • Family History of disease

Even so, some very muscular people can have high BMIs, which wrongly suggests overweight. Refer to the table below to determine what your BMI score means.
