Medihelp Hospital Plan
Every South African is entitled to unrestricted access to the public health system. Sadly, this system is under-resourced and overburdened and for many people private care is of paramount importance and that is why products such as the Medihelp hospital plan is so popular.
In the same breath it needs to be stated that the South African public health system is extremely efficient and comprehensive, even when compared to the public systems available to British and American citizens. The fact is that there are just too many people in South Africa that cannot afford to pay for medical care and that is why the system experiences so much pressure.
South Africans have many options when it comes to private medical aid.There are many reputable medical aid schemes that offer a wide variety of plans. In addition, the industry is strictly regulated and all medical aids are compelled to offer cover for all conditions on the Minimum Benefits lists as contained in the law. The law furthermore compels schemes to keep certain funds in reserve in order to pay for claims from members.
Who should consider a hospital plan and why?
It is an unfortunate fact that medical schemes are expensive because medical care costs are exorbitant. Not everybody can afford comprehensive cover. However, one of the biggest personal tragedies and financial calamities that can occur to any family is when hospitalization becomes necessary. The cost can be extremely high and everyone wants to receive the best possible care. Unfortunately, even simple surgical procedures can cost thousands of rand. The answer is a hospital plan. These plans offer no cover against day-to-day medical expenses such as visits to the GP, dentistry or optometry, but they do pay the bills when someone has to be hospitalized.
