How Does It Work?
What is covered?
There is R31,800 available to cover medical expenses related to the birth of your child in a hospital. Hospital admission is required, the benefit does not cover childbirth at home.
For a more in-depth look, please read our blog post on how maternity cover works.
Can I not just use the Illness Hospital benefit?
Maternity is not an illness and therefore does not get covered under the Illness Hospitalisation benefit.
What is the waiting period?
There is a 12 month waiting period before a new member on a policy can claim on the benefit.
Is authorisation required?
Yes. It is best to inform us as early as possible about your birth plan and expected due date to ensure that you are properly covered should any dates change.
The authorisation procedure is described on the Claims page.
