Medshield’s range of quality Healthcare Benefit Plans results in more members joining the Scheme

 ·9 Jul 2024

Medshield Medical Scheme recently hosted its 55th Annual General Meeting, where Principal Officer Kevin Aron highlighted the Scheme’s impressive performance – maintaining a healthy solvency ratio and strong credit rating despite a challenging economic year.

Medshield has deliberately ensured affordability without compromising the quality of care through its low 2024 contributions and increased benefits, resulting in more members joining the Scheme in the first half of 2024.

Medshield is Your Partner for Life. We have many members who have been with us for 17 years and longer, knowing we have their best interests at heart.

We are a stable organisation that will be around in the long term, with a diverse menu of member-centric benefit plans to cover your needs as you navigate life.

Firstly, there is no guarantee that one’s health will always be good enough to cover medical expenses out of pocket.

Secondly, medical aid should never be a complicated grudge purchase. It is why we make it easy for consumers by offering a benefit plan that is tailored for every stage of life.

In your 20s: If you are a young adult and starting on your life journey, MediCurve is an affordable digital plan that enables young, healthy, tech-savvy, first-time medical aid buyers healthcare cover without any financial strain on their day-to-day lives.

MediCurve offers a bouquet of in-hospital and out-of-hospital benefits, including free, unlimited virtual family practitioner consultations through the Medshield SmartCare benefits. MediSwift is a cost-effective, value-based Hospital Plan that provides amateur athletes with additional physiotherapy and biokinetics benefits both in and out of the hospital.

Or, if you were blessed with a young family, the MediPhila option will protect you from unforeseen medical costs through unlimited hospital cover for PMB conditions, per beneficiary limits for non-PMB In-Hospital treatments and an Out-of-Hospital benefit limit for specific services.

In your 30s: MediValue is the ideal option for individuals needing unlimited hospital and Day-to-Day partial cover. This option is in both the Prime and Compact categories.

The benefits are the same in both, but the Compact category requires the compulsory use of Medshield Provider Networks for a smaller contribution.

Otherwise, MediSaver is perfect for independent individuals who want to manage their own out-of-hospital healthcare expenses through a Personal Savings Account with unlimited hospital cover.

Reaching your 40s and beyond: MediPlus is the answer for middle- to upper-income earners. It offers unlimited in-hospital coverage and a generous day-to-day limit.

This option is in both the Prime and Compact categories. Both benefits are the same, but for a smaller contribution, the Compact category requires the compulsory use of Medshield Provider Networks.

MediBonus is the best choice for corporate employees and individuals who need comprehensive unlimited In-Hospital cover and extensive Day-to-Day benefits.

PremiumPlus provides the most comprehensive cover with freedom of choice, including no network restrictions, 200% cover for specific in-hospital procedures and a Personal Savings Account to manage daily healthcare.

At any stage: Perhaps you are not one to visit the doctor for routine checks, but at the very least, everyone should have unlimited In-Hospital cover in case of major medical emergencies.

MediCore is a hospital plan for those who require unlimited hospital cover with full PMB cover. Certain In-Hospital procedures are paid at a higher rate (Medshield Private Tariff 200%).

Medshield continues to innovate and improve its services, ensuring alignment with international best practices. We place immense importance on having the right capabilities and competencies to provide the highest quality customer service.

Among many service touch points are self-service via the mobile application or website, in-person visits to regional offices, written e-mail correspondence, short code messaging, SMS communication, and telephone or IVR interactions.

No matter what stage in life you may be at, Medshield has a tailored and affordable package for you.
