What are open and closed medical schemes?

February 13, 2016

An open medical aid simply means that the scheme is open to the general public. In other words, anybody can become a member of an open medical aid.
Restricted medical aids are not open to the general public. You have to be working a certain sector of industry, have specific academic qualifications or belong to certain trade union or professional association in order to belong to a restricted medical aid.
