Finding out which health insurance plan is best for you can be a little tricky. In fact, we created an easy to read guide on this exact topic. Click here to read it.

Before we get into the details on our Professional Plan, let’s first explain what health insurance is…

Tell me more about health insurance

You might not have a very good understanding of what health insurance is, and that’s okay. In fact, we love explaining this awesome product…

Health insurance is sort of like an affordable medical aid.

Health insurance works in a similar way to medical aid in that it gives you access to private healthcare and helps cover the costs of medical bills in exchange for a monthly premium (read: I don’t get it - why is health insurance more affordable than medical aid?)

Medical aid is required by law to cover a certain set of health conditions and benefits, meaning medical aid HAS to cover what can sometimes be very expensive and unpredictable medical bills.

With medical insurance, you know exactly what you are covered for because we give you the exact amount of cover you have for each benefit.

For example, with our Core Plan, you know that you have R320 for doctor visits. This means that we cover up to that amount of the bill.

Health insurance helps save you from paying for large medical bills out of your own pocket.
