The saying goes that an apple a day will keep the doctor away. Unfortunately, it is not always that simple. South African health care is amongst the most expensive in the world. A good medical aid scheme can help you overcome very high costs in a time of trauma.

The Afken Group is registered under the Medical Schemes Act in South Africa and our specialists can advise you on what products best suit your individual or business needs.

Key Points to remember

  • Make sure you insure against the major costs of medical emergencies before thinking of the minor ones.
  • Be certain that your medical aid covers hospital, chronic medication (if this is needed) and costly out of hospital procedures like MRI and CAT scans.
  • If you are funding your own medical aid, or are part of a company medical aid scheme, you need to know just what you are not covered for!
  • It is important to remember that penalties may be levied by medical aids if you have not been a member of a Medical Aid for a period of time, better not delay joining-the sooner the better!
  • Prevention is better than cure, give yourself peace of mind.

Promotion of a healthy lifestyle is becoming more prevalent in South Africa and medical aids are promoting healthy living comprising of regular exercise and good eating habits as they have realised the importance of well being and lower medical costs.

What We Can Offer You

Medical Aid 

Medical scheme plans can be confusing. Different schemes offer a wide range of packages, which makes it important for each individual to understand the implications of their choices, depending on personal circumstances. Medical emergencies can arise at any time, and it is not always possible to be prepared emotionally and most importantly, financially.

State institutions are often not resourced adequately, hence the need for medical aid cover to meet the costs of medicine, treatments, and hospitalisation.

Let us assist you with selecting the right plan.
