Medical Aid Plans
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 Aid Schemes
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 cover for every possible risk.
Hospital plans cost considerably less than comprehensive medical aid plans. A basic hospital plan is recommended for healthy active families. If you take responsibility for your own health and know that prevention is better than cure, it will work for you.
