An innovative hospital plan with savings, perfect for young families

You’re responsible and thinking of starting a family, so you want the best option in its price-range even if it’s basic. From only R2,501pm, Maxima Basis is the first of our innovative saver medical aid plans designed to meet your growing needs. On this medical aid option, you’ll enjoy unlimited hospital cover at ALL private hospitals together with a small amount for day-to-day healthcare spending (from R4,500 for a single member per year).

Maxima Basis is also available as a Grid option. Should you opt for the Grid variation, you will pay a reduced monthly premium, enjoy all the same benefits, but only to be able to make use of private hospitals that are on the Fedhealth Grid. If you make use of a non-Grid hospital, you will be liable for a co-payment.


Your medical cover includes:

  • Unlimited hospital cover in any private hospital
  • Female contraceptives covered: oral, contraceptive rings, patch and IUDs including Mirena®
  • Post-hospitalisation treatment for up to 30 days after discharge from hospital
  • 7 days of take-home medication
  • Specialised radiology like MRI and CT Scans covered from Risk after the first R1900
  • Trauma treatment at a casualty ward whether you’re admitted to hospital or not (A R500 co-payment per visit for non-PMBs will apply if you are not admitted to hospital straight from casualty)
  • Contracted fixed rates at Fedhealth Network Specialists – while under the care of a network specialist in hospital, your treatment will always be covered in full
  • Unlimited FP visits at your nominated Fedhealth Network FP that are paid for by the Scheme once your Savings have been depleted
