A Network that Works. For you.

EssentialMED has put tremendous effort into creating a network of service providers that will provide you with quality private healthcare when and where you need it.

Find a doctor or dentist near you

The list is actively grown and maintained

When visiting a network doctor or dentist, you will enjoy the full cover offered in your policy, giving you peace of mind. The network is nationwide across South Africa so you can be serviced with care even while travelling. Network doctors and dentists are familiar with our formularies and procedures so they can best advise you on how to use your benefits to the maximum advantage.

For radiology, pathology, specialists and pharmacies there is no explicit network. You simply need a referral or script from your network GP and your claim will either be switched to us electronically or reimbursed directly to you. For optometry, you can access any Spec-Savers.

We work with all major private hospital groups so you don’t have to worry about having to look for specific private hospitals, you are covered at all of them. We do advise making use of the Mediclinic, NetCare, Life and Busamed hospital groups for the most seamless experience with our policies.
