Resolution Health

    August 27, 2014

    The real health risk in South Africa emerges when serious health events arise. Individuals find themselves out of pocket and having to receive medical attention. The lack of decent care at state hospitals makes it imperative to get into a private hospital. Resolution Health – just like Liberty Medical Aid which offers 9 different medical insurance products as well as Discovery Medical Aid plans – is a non-profit open medical scheme.

    Along with other medical aids such as Momentum Health and Fedhealth, they rate among South Africa’s top largest medical schemes. Unlike state hospitals, the likes of Resolution Health, Discovery Health and other medical aid schemes attend to ALL your health care needs. Momentum Medical Aid offers 6 medical aid options which cater for everyone; from low-income members to those who want high-end cover.

    Resolution Health Amalgamates

    Resolution HealthResolution Health amalgamated with National Independent Medical Aid Society (NIMAS) in August 2012. They provide a range of cost effective products to compliment your existing medical aid plan. Their Core Option is a hospital plan covering members for hospitalisation at 100% of the NIMAS rate, with an unlimited annual overall benefit. NIMAS also covers chronic medication with a monthly contribution for the principal member starting in the region of R1000.

    Health Insurance Companies and Medical Insurance Companies

    Crime and stress in South Africa is making people ill. With a critical shortage of specialised state health care professionals, it is comforting having a good hospital plan from Resolution Health.

    Note that health insurance companies do not offer the same protection as a medical scheme. The most notable difference is the amount of cover a person receives. A medical aid is an insurance against illness irrespective of cost, whereas medical insurance companies pay a fixed lump sum regardless of the service levied by hospitals and other health care providers.

    Resolution Health medical aid started in 1998 and as a private healthcare provider. They have a Global Credit Rating of A+ for their quick payment of claims.
