Welcome to SAMWUMED

SAMWUMED is a national accredited, self-administered medical scheme offering the most affordable medical cover for local government employees.

The Scheme's underlying principles support the view that all South Africans are entitled to quality healthcare at a fair cost and that society must unite to ensure its adequate funding. As such, SAMWUMED sees itself as more than just a facilitator for healthcare transactions but as a guardian of our members' rights.
