Your Cover of Choice

When Life Happens, Bestmed is Here for You

Life can be… unexpected. That’s why you need medical aid that is there for you when you need it. Ironically, choosing the right medical plan can be a pain in the neck.

Medical aid is an important investment in your and your loved ones’ health and well-being. The option that you select isn’t always dependent on your budget – your healthcare needs should also be a fundamental factor in your decision.

Here are three reasons why Bestmed is and should continue to be your number 1 choice:

Value for Money

While it might not be the only element in choosing a medical scheme, looking at your budget is probably the first thing you do when deciding on a medical aid plan. Bestmed ensures you get cover that suits your budget with 3 tailor made ranges that make up 13 plans. Each of our plans include:

  • 75% less co-payments
  • No automatic self-payment gaps
  • Students up to 26 years old are eligible for child dependent rates
  • Free wellness benefits for you and your family

All 13 plans have access to excellent preventative care benefits, including female contraceptives and flu vaccines because prevention is always better than cure.

A World of Healthcare

Affordable healthcare is only as good as the access you have to dependable medical professionals. Bestmed has a countrywide network of specialist doctors, as well as hospital coverage that ensures that you have access to a medical assistance when you need it. Bestmed also offers international travel insurance cover for up to 90 days. So even when you’re not home, you’re covered.
