Intensive Care Unit

This benefit is in addition to the Hospital benefit and adds higher cover for higher ICU costs.
When things get serious, you might need the machine that goes ping. ICU wards have a lot of expensive equipment in them and as a result tend to cost more than a normal hospital stay. The Hospitalisation benefit alone might not be enough to cover it so the ICU benefit takes that extra burden away with stated amounts to cover any extra costs.

ICU Benefit Includes

Covers up to 5 consecutive days
Optional benefit with 2 levels of cover
3 month waiting period

The benefit is not in addition to any other benefits, ICU costs are claimed under the ICU benefit first and additional costs may then apply to other benefits (e.g. Accident Hospitalisation for an accident event).

If you are admitted for an accident event then there is no waiting period.

Choose from 2 Levels of Cover

Level 1
  • R12,500 per member per day
Level 2
  • R20,000 per member per day
