Tailor Made Hospital Plans from Affinity
April 8, 2017
Years back, when South Africa introduced medical insurance, many breathed a sigh of relief that perhaps with the introduction of tailor made hospital plans from Affinity, that at least there was hope for those who just could not afford a full medical aid. In fact, in January 2014 there was a real stir on Facebook because Affinity posted an advertisement which offered medical plans at R299 a month with unlimited medicine and doctors. It was later proved that this offer was true. Affinity offered for that unlimited price medication, doctor’s visits as well as basic optometry and dentistry. A few years later, they have never looked back.
Putting their money where their mouth is
Today, Affinity offers a hospital plan separate from the medical aid. With the launching of medical insurance, a gap developed between medical aid consumer experiences and claiming experiences. Affinity Health saw this gap and today has revolutionised medical insurance. They are a pioneer in health insurance, constantly advancing their product quality and service for their customer. People in South Africa know that claiming on insurance policies can be pretty confusing and downright difficult. Many people say it’s just a tactic by the insurance company to prevent claims from being lodged.
Affinity Health is an insurance company with excellent relationships today between hospitals and doctors for the benefit of their customers.
Affinity Health has a hospital plan for individuals as well as families, at very affordable rates. The hospital plans from Affinity are to give you peace of mind, and the bills start rolling in. Hospital costs are those costs like your bed in the hospital, your theatre fees and medication, even your meals. But with a hospital plan from Affinity, you will be able to pay for these costs.
