Get a Hospital Plan Quote from a Registered Medical Aid
We must emphasise that it is in your best interests to get a hospital plan quote from a registered medical scheme rather than an insurance company.
This is because medical schemes are obliged by law to cover the cost of treatment for a large number of conditions. Insurance companies, on the other hand, have no such obligations. In fact, their private health insurance policies do not relate to any particular health conditions, only to the cost of staying in hospital.
Even if you feel you cannot afford medical aid you are probably able to afford a Discovery Keycare policy. This will cover hospital stays and limited treatment for a number of health conditions as listed in the Medical Schemes Act. One of the benefits of joining Discovery is that you can choose to link to the Discovery Vitality loyalty programme.

International Health Care Insurance
Any medical scheme or health insurance company worth its salt will give you the option of getting travel insurance when you travel outside South Africa. Make sure when you get a hospital plan quote that there is a travel cover option. The cover should include
- Transportation by ambulance
- Medical evacuation by aircraft or helicopter
- Total cost of treatment and hospitalisation
Travel insurance tip: check with your credit card company if they give you automatic health care insurance when you pay for your air ticket with your credit card. Find out what it includes.
Student health insurance
You child will still need hospital plan insurance when he or she goes to college or university. Some medical aids such as Fedhealth allow you to include your student children as dependants until the age of 27. Find out when you get a hospital plan quote if young adult dependants can be included on the policy and if so until what age.
