Medical Aid

Why Choose Opulentia?

Medical aid covers hospitalisation and medical costs if you get sick. This protects you against unexpected expenses when you need medical care.


  • Hospital plans: You are covered for in-hospital care and some chronic conditions, but are not covered for any out-of-hospital costs (such as doctor, optometrist and dentist visits).
  • Savings plans: These combine a hospital plan with an annual rand amount, which you pay to build up medical aid savings. Your savings can fund out-of-hospital costs. If you don't use your savings, they carry over to the next year.
  • Network plans: You pay a lower premium but have to consult medical practitioners from an approved list. Day-to-day benefits such as doctor visits and prescribed medication is generally unlimited, but basic.
  • Limited Comprehensive plans: You get comprehensive medical aid cover, but your cover is limited to a specified amount.
  • Fully Comprehensive plans: You get extensive cover for hospitalisation and day-to-day benefits.
  • Traditional plans: You are covered for in-hospital care, defined chronic conditions and day-to-day benefits. The scheme sets rand amounts for the various day-to-day benefits available for the year, which fall away at the end of the year if not used.
