Yes, unfortunately this takes too big a bite out of our budgets every month and there is no such thing as a cheap Medical Aid on South Africa!
But, that does not mean that you cannot save!
The first step is to make sure that the Medical Aid that you are on is suitable for your requirements. You can either have too many benefits that you simply don't use because you are possibly still young or just healthy, or you could be on an option that doesn't provide for your exact requirements and you end up having to pay too much out of your pocket.
Once you are happy that you are on the best and cheapest Medical Aid for your needs, the next step is to look at adding a Gap Cover product so that you don't have to worry about sudden unbudgeted expenses due to excesses and co-payments.
With that taken care of, you need to look at maximizing the rewards, discounts and cash-backs that many Medical Aid Schemes in South Africa offer. This does take a bit of effort on your part, but is really worth it!
The good news is that Trulogic will help you maximize your rewards every step of the way!
