Why our Health Assistance?

Not being able to pay hospitalisation costs for yourself and your family due to illness or injury can be devastating and financially distressing. Health Assistance will ensure that your expenses are covered. *This is not a medical scheme and the cover is not the same as that of a medical scheme. This policy is not a substitute for medical scheme membership.
