Medical Fund


South Africa has about 105 medical funds totalling around 8 million beneficiaries.  The total annual contribution to medical funds is around R85-billion (according to the Council for Medical Schemes - 2009).  Take into account that South Africa have a population of more than 49 million people! Less than 17% of SA citizens belong to a medical fund.


Not all medical funds are open to the public.  In fact, of the 105 medical funds, only about 33 are open to the public.  This number might decrease over the years as the larger schemes take over the smaller ones.


So how do you choose a medical fund or hospital plan, a specific option of the scheme, which benefits to include or exclude?  In this ever-changing environment, you need the services and advice of an independent intermediary.  Someone who doesn't only have the interests of a specific medical fund at heart, but one who can guide you to ensure your needs is met.
