A hospital plan with unlimited cover, plus other great benefits

Maxima Core Grid
You want to be responsible about your health and can afford to pay a little more these days. From only R2,082pm, Maxima Core is one of the best hospital plans because it provides unlimited hospital cover at ALL hospitals across the country. You also get more freedom on important major medical expenses, like oncology treatment and various reduced co-payments.

Maxima Core is also available as a Grid option. Should you opt for the Grid variation, you will pay a reduced monthly contribution, 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.

This is a GRID option that enables you to pay a lower monthly contribution by choosing to use our Fedhealth network hospitals only.


Your hospital plan cover includes:

  • Unlimited private hospital cover at any hospital
  • Post-hospitalisation treatment for up to 30 days after discharge
  • 7 days of take-home medication
  • Specialised radiology like MRI and CT scans (covered from Risk after the first R2100)
  • Trauma treatment at a casualty ward whether you’re admitted to hospital or not (A R550 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, we’ll cover your treatment in full
