How do Fedhealth lead the way in controlling medical aid savings accounts?
Most medical aids have 2 basic parts:
- In-hospital costs paid by the scheme and
- Day-to-day benefits paid from a savings account that you fund.
It is through this saving fund, that you can effect a significant cost saving!
Medical aids deduct up to 25% of your monthly contribution and place it in a medical savings account, which is used to pay for day-to-day benefits.
You are allocated a year's worth of funds at the beginning of a year.
Whether you use money from this fund or not, the amount is still added to your premium every month!
You cannot use your money outside of what the medical aid dictates and can only realise these funds if you terminate your cover!
The medical aid does not pay interest on your monies.
Is it fair, that you are forced into various plans and have to join complex options - where you pay for day–to–day benefits upfront - before you have even spent a cent on treatments?
Not with Fedhealth!
Fedhealth leads the way in giving you control over your medical aid savings account, because the flexiFED range of plans, allows you to only begin re-paying money used for day-to-day benefits (interest-free over the next 12-months), once you start using it!
You will then have a lower premium, until you start using your savings!
Now that makes sense!
Maybe it time to join the Medical Aid Revolution with Fedhealth?
3 Simple Steps to Create a Your Personal Medical Aid!
1. You select a Core benefit to meet your family size.
These Core benefit bundles all include: hospitalisation, chronic illness, extended benefits if savings used and prevention and screening benefits paid by Fedhealth
, not from your day-to-day savings!
A young single member has different needs to a retired couple, so there are 4 different benefit options to consider. – See the Brochure.
The basic cover includes in-hospital, chronic, screening and day-to-day savings.
2. Grid Option - You can save up to 11% of your monthly contribution by committing to only use Fedhealth’s network of more than 100 world-class private hospitals.
You can use any hospital in an emergency.
These network hospitals are only for planned hospitalisation.
3. Elect Option - if you agree to an R 11 500 excess for all hospital admissions (except for emergencies), you can get up to a 25% premium discount!
All plans offer large savings for day-to-day costs.
Based on your unique profile and the core benefit bundle you choose, a pre-approved amount is automatically placed in your individual savings fund (MediVault) at the beginning of the year. You then transfer amounts from this MediValult to your Wallet, as and when you need them.
Only when you start spending these funds do you start paying back the amount you used - over 12-months, interest free.If you do not use the savings, you don’t pay for them! The funds remain on offer and you pay a lower premium!
Unlike most medical aid savings funds, the amount is not pro-rated - even if you only join in August you’ll have the same amount available as you would have had in January!
Should you use all your savings, Fedhealth offer a safety net benefit for essential medical services, like unlimited network GP visits and defined dentistry benefits!
What if you use all your savings?
As you spend from your savings, you submit those claims.
Fedhealth add them up and when they accumulate to a pre-defined threshold amount, certain benefits, like unlimited network GP visits and dentistry - paid by the scheme - then become available!
If you want only in-hospital benefits, then never use the savings!
You then have a hospital plan, but with the safety of having funds for high out of hospital costs - should you ever need them!
Now you really do have the full flexibility to control your own premiums by personalising your option and creating a package of benefits you need - at a price you can afford!
