Comprehensive medical plan: Genesis total cover caters for both in-hospital costs as well as outpatient treatment.

This applies also to sessions with occupational therapists, physiotherapists, chiropracters as well as dieticians.

Any medicines prescribed by the GP or specialists will be covered to 100 percent of the legislated cost. X-rays and pathology services will be covered up to 200% of the medical aid rate. However, CT scans and MRIs will only be covered to 50% of the medical aid rate or to a limit of R7,250.
