The rising costs of medical aid

When Googling medical aids, a top question that pops up: Is medical aid worth it? Another popular question: What plan out there is the cheapest?

We get it. In today’s world, the rising costs of good healthcare can be a significant burden for many individuals and families.

In a recent survey, it was revealed that medical aid rates in South Africa rose by 9.5%, compared to the 6.4% increase this time last year.

Again, we get it – nobody wants to break the bank! However, with affordable accident plans from accidentANGELS, we are giving accessible medical assistance in the event of the highest risk to all South Africans – a road accident.

The rising cost of private hospital rates

Those without medical aid who go to a private hospital have to pay high rates for emergency room costs as well as a hefty deposit if admitted into a ward for sustained injuries. What’s added to all that worry? One would also have to add up consultation fees, medications, surgical frees, and expensive radiology such as CT scans and tests. Need surgery after a serious car accident? You would have to budget for time spent in the operating theatre, in addition to surgeon and anaesthetist fees too.

So, what do we do when these premiums and private hospital rates are excessive, and we have a budget and family to look after?
