Momentum Health Hospital Plans
January 13, 2015
In South Africa there are many medical aid schemes, but Momentum Health hospital plans are among the best options available.
- Cheap hospital cover
Cheap hospital plans differ from a comprehensive medical aid, since a broader variety of procedures in hospital itself are covered, as well as at a higher level, since the whole purpose of a hospital plan is of course to cover the time and costs spent during hospital visits.Hospital plan insurance is ideal for someone healthy, probably younger and someone still independent from family responsibilities.

An important aspect to keep in mind as well, is that cheaper as well as better cover for hospital visits are always through hospital plans registered at the Council for Medical Schemes, instead of through a normal insurance company. The reason for this is that registered schemes are forced by law to cover a certain minimum, even when it concerns a hospital plan only, for example when it comes to the treatment of a chronic condition or medication. Discovery Health for example only recently got registered with the Council for Medical Schemes.
