How do I select the best medical aid option?

February 15, 2016

Assess your medical needs by consulting a medical aid broker, or contact a number of respected South African medical schemes independently. Choose a plan that suits your needs; if you’re healthy and not prone to sickness, it may be a good idea to get a medical aid plan that features low day-to-day benefits, but substantial hospital coverage.

This will stand you in good stead in the case of a car accident, for example. Always read the small print regarding benefits, thresholds and conditions for cover.
