Making Medical Aid Work for You
A variety of private medical aid schemes are gaining members because the bid for quality healthcare is so great in South Africa as a result of the over-burdened and under-resourced state-sponsored facilities.
Match Your Needs
choice should match your needs, your age, stage of life, any pre-existing medical
conditions, state of health, financial situation as well as income. All of
these considerations apply equally to those joining a scheme for the first time
and those who currently hold membership.
Even though you may already belong to a private scheme, you may be finding your ever-increasing monthly contributions less affordable than before, particularly if your income is not keeping pace with the increased cost of living that prevails in latter-day South Africa. Nonetheless, you still have choices, but whatever you do, do not stop your membership in the hope that you will be fine.
Do not tempt fate by thinking “nothing can go wrong”, because medical matters, especially in emergency situations, may just prove you wrong. Rather exercise one of your options that still allow you retain vital medical aid membership.
Choosing Medshield Medical Aid
The first step in selecting the right Medshield medical aid option for you (and your family, if applicable), is establishing your needs, measured as closely as possible to one of our seven plans. Remember, the more comprehensive the cover you choose, the greater the contribution will be. This is true of all schemes and plans, as it is with almost anything you buy.
It is important to understand that medical aid is an insurance product, for which you pay a monthly premium, known as a contribution. Like any other insurance, you hope you will never need to claim, but if or when you do, you will have the cover that you selected. There is no price too great to pay for your and your family’s ongoing health and wellbeing, or the peace of mind in being assured that you will have aid to cover expenses when you most need it.
