On the air with MoneyWeb and SAFM

Episodic's CTO, Will van der Leij, spoke to SAFM's Nompu Siziba on the MoneyWeb show about how health insurance and medical aids relate to each other. It covers:

  • What is health insurance and how does it differ from medical aid?
  • What are the main benefits of health insurance?
  • What is the difference in premium?
  • How to combine health insurance and medical aid

We cover these and more in the interview. Listening to this recording will give you a good introductory understanding of how the industry is divided between health insurance and medical aid.

The "Medical Aid Season" closes towards the end of each year and is the time where Medical Aid Schemes and Health Insurance providers publish their product changes and update their premiums. It is an important time of year to evaluate your medical needs and choose products that suit your budget for the coming year.

It is a great opportunity to talk to South Africans about the difference between Medical Aid and Health Insurance plans. Medical insurance can be an affordable alternative for those that can’t afford a medical aid. It can also be taken with a Medical Aid plan to add Day-to-Day benefits for a more comprehensive portfolio.

As always, we believe it is your choice and we are here to help you make an informed decision when choosing health cover that suits you and your family. Contact us for more information.
