The benefits of Medical Aid are enjoyed by a few people in South Africa. This is often as the result of fees becoming more expensive every year. The fact is, not everyone is able to afford traditional medical aid packages on offer. This has created a gap in the market for alternative healthcare insurance providers, with packages specifically designed for individual needs as opposed to a generic package.
