Here are some medical plans from as little as R 439 per month (single member) you should investigate:
STUDENT PLAN – from 439 pm
Because you are not earning an income does not mean you should not be able to join a medical aid!
2 schemes offer a plan at subsidised rates for full-time students.
Use the link above for the best plans. Here you can see exactly what benefits you have with each plan.
These plans offer you private hospitalisation at any hospital you choose and mostly unlimited day-to-day benefits through a network of private providers.
Home Affairs accepts these plans for International study VISA requirements!
Minimum payment will be 6-months - depending upon the term required by your visa - and you need to deposit for that period.
I will immediately process your application and within a day or 2, provide you with your certificate.

These are the best student medical aids to seriously consider!

The greatest medical financial risk we face is Private Hospitalisation.
So, it is vital you have at least a medical scheme hospital benefit plan!
Pay your own day-to-day claims directly or from your own savings.

Your savings are yours to spend as you want. You earn interest on any balance. You control the usage. A medical plan savings does not do this!
