How does your medial aid plan cover this benefit?

What you see above is the minimum level of cover for each condition. Medical aids can offer more benefits than the limits above.

To see how your plan pays out for a condition, find your plan here, and view your plan’s full benefits.

You can also compare any two medical aid plans side by side, to see which one suits your needs best.

Remember, a medical aid can still impose conditions on how PMBs are treated. For example, the scheme can impose network service providers (DSPs), a medicine formulary or even require that you be treated in a state hospital. You can read a full explanation on how medical aids must pay for PMBs here.
