fedhealthWhy You Should Join Fedhealth Medical Aid.

Fedhealth Medical Aid is truly an exceptional medical aid because they really do offer the best, affordable, unique, value-added benefits of any medical scheme in South Africa!
Their healthcare plans will meet all your needs!

This is the only medical aid that allows you to control your premium, while keeping the best benefits available!

The finest, unlimited hospital cover (at any hospital) with the option of a day-to-day savings account that you repay -

medical aid and covid19

What options to fund COVID-19 vaccines for Fedhealth members is the scheme considering?

Becsause the primary role is the funding of medical services and medication for members, Fedheaslth will ensure that all members and dependents will be coverd by the vaccine once available. It is presumed costs of this will be paid by the scheme and subject to the government roll-out plan.

And this is how they do it ...

Most Medical aids offer in-hospital benefits, paid by the scheme and out of hospital costs (paid by you through a savings account in the plan). A scheme then advances you a year’s worth of savings when you start with them and immediately take a monthly re-payment amount, of that advanced fund, whether you use the savings or not!
It is really a compulsory loan you cannot refuse!

Fedhealth DON’T DO THIS!
You are not restricted to a one-size-fits-all medical aid.
No ways … because you can personalise your cover to suit your needs!

1. The Flexible plan.

You have a choice when you start paying for your day-to-day medical benefits!
Yes, you only start repaying the amount that you have spent, interest free, when you start using your savings fund!

So, delay using your day-to-day savings or never use it at all, (but have the confidence money is available when you need it) and your premium will always be at the lowest rate!

This is the same as having the best hospital only benefit plan, (which is already a cheaper option), but with a safety net of easily accessible money for out of hospital costs, should you need it.

If you do not use your savings, you do not pay for it!

This is surely the best way to control your medical aid cost because:

  • You do not pay for day-to-day benefits until you use them. This can save you thousands of rand monthly!
  • You pay less, yet get the same quality of benefits as the traditional plan!
  • You are in full control over your medical aid premium!
  • You have 1 debit order a month, made up of both benefits!
  • You do not lose money you have not spent as it transfers to your next year of cover!

2. The Fixed plan.

Should you be concerned about managing your savings fund yourself, DO NOT FEAR, for you can join the same plan and let the scheme take care of the admin - as with current medical aids.

This plan:

  • is simple and secure and you know upfront how much of the savings fund you have for the year!
  • starts repaying that "loan" once you receive it, so your monthly premium never change!.
  • has 1 debit order per month!
  • has no added admin. They manage your funds automatically!
  • transfers any left over savings to your next year of cover!

fedhealth medical aid savings

There is also a safety net whereby, if you spend a pre-defined amount of your savings, further claims for certain treatments are paid by the scheme and not from your savings!

Yes, Fedhealth will pay for:

  • unlimited GP visits at nominated network GPs!
  • preventative dentistry benefits at contracted dentists including x-rays, scaling and polishing!

Consider this ... A single member in 2021, with the leading medical aid can get a comprehensive plan for R 3,290 pm.
It has a R 9,864 savings account for out of hospital costs.

BUT, Fedhealth has a plan for R 2,500 pm and has savings of R 10,224 for out of hospital costs!
That’s over R 9,000 per year cheaper!
With very similar benefits!

Yes, if you spend savings you will increase the next premium, as you then have to start to pay back the savings you have used
But with your good management, just look at what you could save!

If you prefer the simplicity and familiarity of the traditional medical aid, they have the identical plan that works the same way as all South African medical aid savings funds work.
Your full annual saving allocation is ready for use from the start.

But, that's not all! There are further discounted premiums on offer as well!

If you are prepared to use listed hospitals (except in an emergency when you can use any facility), you can get an 11% discounted premium!

If you are prepared to have a co-payment of R 12,500 when being admitted to any hospital (except in an emergency) you can get an 25% discounted premium!

Now when you compare premiums, Fedhealth is a mighty R 17,000 per year less!
Use some of these savings to join a Top Up plan and the excess is paid for! And you will still pay less!

With careful management and Fedhealth, you have a huge opportunity to reduce your medical aid costs over a year!
No doubt about it, this is a truly exceptional value-for-money medical aid!

Fedhealth Medical Aid is the ONLY scheme where, if you do not use your day-to-day savings, your premium is reduced!

Fedhealth pays more than other medical aids!
