So now that you know what can go wrong while you are on holiday, let’s see how Essential Med can keep you in peak condition so that you can keep enjoying your well-deserved break.

Our national network of health care providers, which include GPs, Pharmacies, Emergency Rooms and Private Hospitals will be able to assist you when you need immediate medical attention.

We understand that your holiday budget did not include keeping aside money to see a doctor about that tummy bug, but by taking out an Essential Med Policy, you can keep that extra cash for more Christmas decorations.

From as little as R159 per month for a single member, you will be able to visit a GP and get medication to treat your illness. If you are still not better, we will even cover the costs of blood tests or x-rays to investigate further.

For a few more bucks, we can include R150 000 accident cover for the year and R2000 for after hour Emergency Rooms.  This will cost R269 per month. 

So, where is the catch?  Not in the waiting periods because none of the above benefits have a waiting period if you take out a Policy with Essential Med starting December 2016.

Basically, you get unlimited GP consultations, free blood tests, x rays and acute medication and no waiting periods and for a few rands more great accident cover and access to after-hours emergency rooms.

Of course, we can offer you a whole lot more but we will keep that for the New Year….
