Medical Aid Questions Answered

What is medical aid?

Medical aid is a form of insurance where you pay a monthly amount – called a contribution – in return for financial cover for medical treatment you may need, as well as any related medical expenses. The amount of cover you’ll get depends on the type of medical aid plan you’re on, but always includes a minimum set of benefits (such as in-hospital treatment and treatment of chronic conditions). If you’re on a more comprehensive medical aid plan, it can also cover you for medical expenses such as GP visits, dental treatment and prescribed medication.
