Medical Aids in South Africa - Advice

Medical aids in South Africa have come a long way since their inception in the 1900s. Growing competition between South Africa's medical aid schemes and health insurance companies has led to medical aid and health insurance becoming more accessible in the South African context. Schemes such as Selfmed now offer highly affordable medical aid plans to suit different lifestyles and budgets – just explore our medical aid plans to see what we mean!
