FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Our goal is to help you make an informed decision about the medical cover that you need.
HOW MUCH DOES MEDICAL AID COST?
Medical aid varies greatly in price. Most medical schemes offer a range of plans, from low cost cover for consumers earning below a certain level to network-only hospital plans and comprehensive medical aid being the most expensive. It is about choice and we have partnered with leading medical schemes in South Africa to help you find the best cover for your needs and budget.
IS MEDICAL AID THE ONLY OPTION?
Medical aid may be the most sought after medical cover but it is not affordable for every South African. Whether it is full medical aid cover or just a medical aid hospital plan, the monthly cost may be out of your reach. More South Africans are exploring other medical cover options like hospital insurance and medical insurance which are not medical aids but still provide some cover.
WHAT IS HOSPITAL INSURANCE?
Hospital insurance pays for each day in hospital. Whether you are admitted in a public or private hospital, the cover will ensure that you receive a daily payout in order to fund our personal expenses or medical bills. Hospital insurance is not medical aid but it can help to provide financial cover when you may incur costs while being hospitalised.
WHAT IS MEDICAL INSURANCE?
Medical insurance pays for day-to-day medical care. From GP consults and certain medication to specialists visits and diagnostic tests, medical insurance ensures that some, if not all, of your day-to-day medical expenses are covered. Most medical insurance plans also provide unlimited GP consults when visiting a practitioner within the designated network.
