Why you need medical aid in South Africa?

One month before the birth of my second son I asked my wife why I have medical aid. Such a waste of money. It’s expensive! Even with the Discovery Classic Delta Saver option.

My actual words ” I haven’t claimed anything from medical aid in almost 10 years”

One month later, my wife goes into pre-term labour – some complications and the baby arrives 7 weeks premature.

Fortunately this time around we signed up for Gap Cover from Old Mutual to cover costs that Medical Aid does not cover.

Be careful. What puzzles me though — how does average man/woman handle this. People who don’t have medical aid in South Africa?

  1. Yes! But dr and hospital fees such a rip off! And it seems they’re in cahoots with the medical aids! Hate it when they send you from pillar to post and bill you all the way! I suppose its difficult to be without it….so we basically screwed!
