What are the Benefits of KeyHealth Hospital Plans

    August 24, 2017

    Here we will have a look at the benefits of KeyHealth:

    • healthy people battling with monthly expenses appreciate a hospital plan
    • those who consistently reach the end of the Medical Savings Accounts by the middle of the year look at hospital plans
    • hospital plans come at a substantially lower cost than medical aids
    • just like on medical aid plans, hospital plans cover 26 chronic conditions
    • just like medical schemes, hospital plans fall under the Medical Schemes Act of 1998. Note that hospital cash-back plans are sold by insurance companies and are not covered by these regulations.
    • if your finances are tight, a good hospital plan is a preferable choice


    Everybody would love to have a medical aid in South Africa. Having medical cover is desirable as it can prevent you landing up in a state hospital.

    Medical cover has, however, become out of reach for most South Africans. It is certainly a sought after plan for those who are young and who consider themselves healthy.  This is when a hospital plan is worth considering as it can at least offer you basic medical cover.

    Hospital Plans – Benefits of KeyHealth

    Benefits Of KeyHealthA hospital plan has become an essential form of medical cover and what you get will depend largely on the plan you have. That is why you need to understand what procedures are covered before you sign up for one of these plans. Once you sign up for one of them, as your financial situation changes you may want to move from your hospital plan to full medical cover.

    Many medical aids of South Africa offer these hospital plans. They suit the young and healthy, they suit those on a tight budget and they suit people battling with chronic medical conditions. Some of them even have out-of-hospital benefits. There is no doubt that hospital cover is a worthwhile consideration.

    KeyHealth offers affordable medical aid, and this includes the hospital plan, allowing you to have access to emergency-, day-to-day, and preventative health care.

    Members of KeyHealth appreciate that KeyHealth prefers to focus on delivering products which are free of frivolous, unwanted add-ons and that what you get is pure medical care.
