At Essential Med we’ve long felt that health insurance needs to be more accessible, more affordable and more relevant to South Africans’ needs, and so we’re delighted to be launching a brand new form of medical insurance cover. The new cover allows our clients to build their own health insurance plans, selecting the cover options they need while excluding the elements they don’t.

Did you know, for example, that most medical insurance works as a one-size-fits-all package – that means that part of the fees that a single male or a middle-aged woman pay each month are allocated to maternity cover – a benefit they’re unlikely to use. This unique approach to medical insurance unlocks a whole host of new benefits and may even reduce the size of your monthly premium.

If you are an existing Essential Med client, speak to one of our friendly consultants to find out how this change affects you and to explore how you can migrate your current policy to one of our new plans.
