Q.

please advise

Why is it that dentist cover is less than doctors cover? Surely we need to see the Dentis 2 a year, and in some c ases more. Our med aid's dental cover is so low, it only covers for one dependents two visits.

Hi

I want to ask as well... medical aids only pay for normal dentistry, like fillings and general check-ups. Why don't they pay for crowns etc?

Thank you

I ask myself the same question every day!!!

Only your medical aid can answer that question for you, the more members that complain ,the more likely they are to increase your cover. Remember the medical aid has NO obligation to the doctor,but ONLY to the member as you are the one who is paying them and keeping them in business!
