    February 28, 2017

    FedHealth supplies two highly competitive hospital plans at affordable rates. Both FedHealth Blue Door Plus and Maxima EntryZone give comprehensive hospital cover at prices which almost anyone can afford. EntryZone is the cheaper option of the two. However, you get top-class cover at this low price. Blue Door Plus gives you unlimited coverage in the case of hospitalisation but comes to a slightly higher cost. Here we will be taking a look at what the core differences between this two hospital plan to see which is better suited to you and your family.

You in-hospital cover is unlimited, even on EntryZone. Seven days’ worth of take-home medication is also paid for, like MRI and CT scans. Should you opt for non-network medical providers, FedHealth still covers a 100% tariff rate. Cardiac, HIV and both women and children’s health screening are provided free of charge.

    Blue Door Plus Grants Unlimited Hospital Cover

    So from emergency ambulance services to medical appliances and physical therapy, you have full cover with no annual limit. Immune deficiencies are fully handled, as are blood clots and blood work issues. Maternity care has an annual limit of R32,900 per event, while the annual limit is set at R48,700. Pathology and general radiology are also unlimited, specialised radiology has coverage at R12,100 per beneficiary, with a limit of R24,400 per family per year. You get two mental health consultations per year, and you are also eligible for basic dental and optometry. Also a great benefit of Blue Door Plus is the unlimited budget for acute medical conditions and acute medication.

    Flexible Options Dependent on Your Income

    So both packages from FedHealth give you access to some of the best healthcare providers in the country at highly competitive rates.  Blue Door Plus is the better option, thanks to the dental, wellness and optometry benefits but if you can’t afford the premiums, you are still getting great value from EntryZone.
