What are medical aid waiting periods?

When you join a medical aid scheme, you’ll usually be subjected to a period of time after you join where you won’t be covered if you need to make a medical claim. This is known as a waiting period and is usually three months in length, depending on the medical aid scheme you join. Typically there is also a secondary waiting period for treatment for any pre-existing condition you had when you joined the scheme.
