How to choose a Bonitas plan


  •               It is vital to budget properly and to make sure that the chosen Bonitas plan can be afforded. That said: too many families see a plan from a scheme such as Bonita medical aid as an onerous expense and only realize the potentially disastrous results of such thinking when calamity strikes.
  •       The budget for Bonitas medical cover should not be an afterthought but rather a very high priority. It is far better to first make provision for this vital cover and to base budgets for other expenses on the funds available after medical cover has been paid. 
  •         Every person and family need to assess their own minimum needs. Many schemes offer prospective members a free risk assessment. Factors such as family histories, existing conditions, the age of the members and even their occupations and hobbies should be taken into account.  


The Bonitas medical scheme has a long and honourable history in South Africa. It is a large, financially sound company that enjoys a high level of loyalty from its members. © Medical Aid Plan
