Essential Med- affordable premiums for access to private healthcare

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.

Essential Med is a leading health insurance company that aims to provide affordable and innovative products.

Essential Med, which has nine years of experience within the industry, aims to counter the soaring costs of traditional medical aid, by offering affordable premiums that give clients access to private healthcare. The institution seeks to provide value-for-money policies.

Product packages include:
