Gift your loved one

Love is in the air! It’s that time of the year again where everyone’s current search history relates to finding affordable and unique Valentine’s Day gifts. But before you go make another mindless order of chocolates and flowers, perhaps you’ll be interested in purchasing the number one Valentine’s Day gift yet: health insurance.

When it comes to Valentine’s Day everyone’s strategy is pretty much the same: getting a gift that shows your loved one just how much you appreciate them. However, showing your love and adoration in gift-form can be a rather trying task. This often leads to some rather stressful pre-V Day shopping.

And yet, the perfect gift isn’t sitting on the third page of your local florist’s website or even at your nearest jeweller. Your pressie needs to represent something of value, and quite frankly, nothing says ‘I love you and want you around’ like giving someone the gift of good health!

Going unconventional in 2021

Over the last year, many people have found their approaches to life drastically changing. In 2021, the saying ‘health is wealth’ couldn’t reign more true as we all still try to navigate through life in a pandemic. So why not incorporate your loved one’s wellbeing into your gift-giving? 

Now we know that getting health insurance as a Valentine’s Day gift is rather unconventional, but it truly is one of the most selfless gestures out there! Giving your special person health insurance is the easiest way to show your devotion to them. Essentially, you’re willing to go to great lengths to ensure that they are fully protected against all of life’s many twists and turns.

So yes, it may not come in a small jewellery box or with a giant ribbon but trust us when we say that your Valentine’s Day shopping isn’t complete until you’ve purchased health insurance.

Total affordability

Now when someone tells you to purchase health insurance as a gift, it’s pretty natural for your mind to wander to a dark place: financial debt. This thought process is totally understandable, but you haven’t just stumbled onto any old health insurance company, you’re with US. And things work a little differently here.

Prioritizing your loved one’s health doesn’t have to break the bank, and it shouldn’t either. It’s for this very reason that we have kept our health insurance plans incredibly affordable. Our team of experts have crunched the numbers and done the research to ensure that our policies make for the perfect year-round gift.

But affordability isn’t the only perk. Oh no, this truly is the gift that keeps on giving. We’re going to break it all down for you.

Perks of giving Oneplan health insurance as a gift

Access to private medical care

Here’s the harsh truth: private health care is incredibly expensive. Going to seek medical help at these facilities will surely set them back thousands of Rands. Until now. When they become a Oneplan member they gain exclusive access to ANY registered private healthcare centre in the country.

You can keep your doctor

A major part about prioritizing your health is having medical professionals that you feel comfortable and safe around. So, instead of forcing our clients (read: family members) into sticking to a list of associated doctors, we’ll let them keep their doctor. Essentially you are able to see whomever you want!


Okay, this is a MAJOR perk. Alongside your health insurance gift, you can give your loved one an exclusive personal Onecard. This card will basically act like their own personal debit card. Whenever they need to head to the doctor, we will preload funds onto the card, so they don’t have to worry about footing the medical bill.

Yup, we will load the money on BEFORE they see their doctor of choice.

Oneplan App

Giving the gift of health insurance with Oneplan also means giving the gift of convenience. You don’t have to stand in a line at our offices to merely check up on your policy. You can do it all from our Oneplan app – that really does it all. Simply log in to check your balance, to log a claim or to have a chat to one of our insurers.

The easiest claims system

If you were to look at the reviews of most insurance companies, the number one complaint is around how difficult claiming can be. Again, this won’t be your loved ones worry as we have simplified our claims process and it’s pretty impressive (if we do say so ourselves.)

Jargon you can understand

Once you hand over the insurance policy gift to your loved one, they’ll most likely want to read up about their health insurance plan. They are in for a total treat here because we’ve done away with all the overwhelming insurance lingo. We like to keep things simple and clear, so they don’t have to worry about swiping their Onecard at the nearest doctor after having an insurance- jargon induced headache.

Peace of mind

Every single person deserves to have peace of mind and in today’s current climate that can feel like quite a big ask. But it isn’t. Giving the people in your life health insurance will instantly grant them the peace of mind knowing that their health is always sorted and that they don’t need to fork over thousands of Rands to do so. 

So, let’s get unconventional in 2021 when it comes to our Valentine’s Day gifting. Get in contact with one of our insurers who will happily help you sort out your gift just in time for the big day!


Yours in affordable health insurance,

The Oneplan Team
