Why is medical aid important?

Many people often think they have better things to spend their money on than medical aid cover. The truth is in today’s world, healthcare costs are extremely high and just one day in a private hospital or one operation can deplete any emergency funds you may have. While you might think that you are all fit and healthy, accidents do happen and can occur at the least opportune time.

The advantages of belonging to a medical aid:
  • It financially protects you if you suddenly have to pay large, unexpected medical cost.
  • You can look after your family and focus on early treatments as opposed to waiting until someone is really sick.
  • You have the choice of going to a private hospital over a crowded public hospital.
  • If you have medical aid, you can usually rest assured that there will be no long delays in your medical treatment because you don’t have funds to pay for it.
  • Medical Tax rebates – government want you to have medical aid cover and they provide rebates making it more affordable.
