Medical aid is expensive, even hospital plans on medical aid are expensive, find out why our core plan is the plan of your budget dreams

December is around the corner and as a result we are all starting to save for the holidays, christmas, family time and maybe even a little getaway.

We all know the risks associated with not having medical aid as our public hospitals are often overrun, especially during the festive period.

"And the last thing you want to be doing is sitting for hours waiting to see a doctor."

The thing is, life is complicated and health insurance shouldn’t be. That’s why we have created a health plan that is designed to suit your lifestyle and your wallet and cover you for the things that matter most, today.

Right then, let’s get back to our plan...

How much does it cost?

What makes this plan so great?
