Healthcare doesn’t begin and end with hospitals. At Essential Med we understand that people get sick daily and need treatment from doctors and access to medication. That’s why we offer Day-to-Day Benefits and cover for daily medical costs.
Colds, flu, tummy bugs, allergies, health checks and more, these out-of-hospital medical requirements are taken care of with managed access to a network of more than 3 000 health practitioners nationwide.
Whether it’s a sinus infection or a stomach problem, we know that it’s important for you to see a doctor as soon as you start to feel the symptoms. These kinds of illnesses can worsen if they aren’t treated early on. That’s why we have only the best doctors and healthcare professionals registered in our network.
Being sick or injured can have a hugely negative effect on your life. It can cause you to miss work, which means you use up your sick leave and have to catch up on all your work when you return. It could also make it difficult for you to perform the daily tasks you need to do at home.
With our day-to-day medical cover benefits, all you need in order to access a free consultation and medication from any of the Essential Doctor healthcare professionals is your Essential Med membership card and policy number.
We recognise that one-size-fits-all offerings rarely provide the specific benefits that individuals need, so we’re changing the face of health insurance by allowing our clients to select the benefit options they need their day-to-day health cover to provide, ensuring it suits their needs and their budget. Configure your own insurance package using our simple plan builder and quote generator.
