Traditional Medical Aid Plans (Cover from R1000)
These cover most of your medical expenses and include benefits for hospital, daily expenses and chronic medications. This type of plan is recommended for those who want comprehensive cover, but do not want a savings benefit included in the cover.
Comprehensive Medical Schemes (Cover from R1500)
Unlike the above plan, this option does have a savings component and also covers almost every other medical expense as well. Recommended for individuals or a family who wants comprehensive medical scheme cover for every possible risk, and can afford to do so.
Hospital plans / Health Insurance day to day (Cover from R300) cost considerably less than comprehensive medical aid plans but still provide excellent hospital cover and related insurance as well as day to day benefits. A basic hospital plan is recommended for reasonably health families that want to protect themselves from unforeseen future risks.
