About – Essential Med Health

Essential Med is a medical cover which pays for the essential medical costs that we endure in life.  

As a health and medical specialist team, we know better than anyone, what costs are involved in the road to staying healthy.

Essential Cover for Healthy Living

A simple doctor visit can cost you hundreds of Rands, imagine having to see a specialist, or need surgery.

Don’t put off good health because you can’t afford the payment of the doctor or hospital.

With Essential Med, this is a thought of the past. We have created a medical insurance plan that will cover those costs, so you can afford to keep healthy.

Affordability and Practicality

We take our time to resource and investigate the needs of clients, and use the outcomes to create the best insurance solution. We look at affordability as well as practicality.

We don’t offer you something that you cannot use; we look at where you live, what resources are available to you and tailor a solution that fits you perfectly.

Services – Essential Med Health

Essential med offer clients the option of two fantastic health insurance covers – our clients also have the option of combining the tow to create an insurance cover that meets all your needs.

Hospital Cover

We will provide a medical savings account at minimal premium monthly, to use on hospital cover. More and more often, clients are under the knife for a procedure that was either or put off for months, or in an emergency.

If you are admitted into hospital, for any procedure that entitles you to spend more than 24 hours in hospital, we will cover everything that happens.

The blood test, medications, doctor visits, surgery and everything else that occurs during your hospital stay, will be covered from your Essential Med hospital plan.

Day to Day Cover

Covers doctor visits, pharmacy bills, dentist and physio. There will be a limit in place on your medical aid as per your terms of policy.

We will also issue you with ta list of the preferred specialist who work in line with our medical cover, to ensure payment is made directly to them, and not out your pocket.
