Done with changing nappies? flexiFED 4 provides solid medical aid cover for more mature families whose kids are no longer toddling about. Apart from good hospital cover, it offers a MediVault and Wallet for any unexpected day-to-day medical costs, as well as a Threshold benefit once your claims have accumulated to a certain level. Keep your family healthy and well, as they journey through life.
