Company Medical Aid with a Job
Medical expenses are a concern for every person. South Africa’s public health system leaves a lot to be desired and private health care in the country is expensive, to say the least. Most of us cannot afford more than a few days of hospitalisation with medical care from specialists. Many cannot even afford the deposit to be admitted to a hospital. Medical aid is the only option for the average earning citizen to access private health services.
While any person is allowed to join a medical in South Africa, irrespective of whether they are employed or not, these financial products are also quite pricey. The offering of a medical aid by an employer can therefore make all the difference.
