A medical scheme, or a hospital plan, is an essential must have in South Africa today. Private healthcare costs could be crippling, and while some state hospitals are excellent, the standard of care varies according to the hospital you're in.

Take action:
Phone an independent medical broker, as they will point you towards the best scheme for your specific needs; assess your health accurately, and choose a scheme that will cover the things you need; if money is an issue, consider taking out a hospital plan that requires you to use a specific network's hospitals – this could save you hundreds; read the small print regarding exclusions, especially for certain hospital procedures.
