Although January is already behind us, for many, 2012 has only just begun. Essential Med would like to take this opportunity to thank all our policyholders for their loyalty and ongoing support and to wish you all a very happy and healthy 2012. We also welcome our new policyholders and look forward to being of service to you.


Essential Med is recognised for affordable good quality health insurance products and it is our quest to maintain this, despite the rising cost of hospitalisation and medical care. We have therefore worked hard to successfully negotiate a premium increase of only 6,5% (average) for 2012, well below the medical aid average of around 9,5%.

The new 2012 premiums come into effect as of 1 March 2012. Click here to see our updated rates and visit our policy option pages to be reminded of the various products and benefits we offer.

We would also like to remind you of the value-added Essential Plus services that all our policyholders have access to. These include health, home, legal, travel and auto assistance.

As your partner in good health, we look forward to giving you access to benefits that meet your healthcare needs and enable you to live a life uninterrupted.

If you have any queries or would like to discuss updating or upgrading your policy please contact us on 0861 632 123 or [email protected]
