Why Opt for Hospital Plans?
Not everybody can afford comprehensive
medical cover that will make provision for visits to the GP, the dentist and the optometrist. However, everybody
dread the possibility of an accident or other medical emergency that require hospital treatment. Private hospitals
are very expensive and many procedures and specialist services are simply beyond the means of the average South
African. That is where hospital cover can save the day. Members can rest assured that they will receive top of the
range care when they face hospitalization without having to worry about the cost of the treatment. Clientele has
gone to great lengths to design products that will fulfil the needs of their
What Plans do Clientel Offer?
Clientele is of opinion that less is
often more. They therefore offer only two plans in this range, arguing that numerous plans simply confuse consumers
and that it complicates the management of the plans, makes claims difficult to process and frustrates members.
Their plans are straight forward and the benefits, terms and conditions are clearly specified. They have two to
1. The Standard Clientele Life
Plan. Astonishingly, members can join this plan for a monthly premium of as low as
one hundred rand, surely making it one of the most affordable plans in the country! Simply put: the plan pays
members a cash amount of up to three thousand rand for each day they spend in hospital. However, benefits only kick
in after the third day. What the member does with the cash is irrelevant to Clientele Hospital Plan. He may choose to pay his medical bills but is not obliged to use the
money for that purpose. Members will even receive a cash bonus if they make no claims over a five year period. The
plan makes provision for pre-existing conditions, but it does not cover HIV / AIDS related illnesses. It does
include maternity benefits, however.
2. The Premium Clientele Life
Plan. As with the Standard plan, members are paid a cash amount for each day in
hospital, but one from day four onwards. In this case the payment can be as high as five thousand rand per day.
This plan also includes cover for the treatment of dread diseases and even for accidental death. HIV / AIDS related
illnesses are cover3d but only if they are contracted after the cover has been active for some time. Members are
paid a no-claim bonus after sixty months.
The Clientele hospital plan is just one
of the many innovative plans offered by this financial giant. The company is committed to providing all South
Africans with affordable health cover options and their customer satisfaction rate certainly says that they are
doing it right. © Medical Aid
