Getting to know Topmed Hospital Plan
Topmed, initially established in 1972 and currently a household name in South Africa, is well-known for its comprehensive medical aid plans. However, they offer the affordable Topmed hospital plan too.
Also, this scheme utilises expertise and industry strengths and provides tailor-made products to meet the growing needs of prospective clients.
Recently they have innovatively partnered with other service providers to ensure that members receive value for money as well as service excellence.
TopMed Hospital Plan
