Arguably one of the most important aspects of modern life is healthcare and how we choose to provide this for ourselves and our families. In South Africa, the cost of private healthcare doesn’t come cheap and often we are left with a heap of medical expenses and insufficient credit card facilities over and above our medical aid cover, even if we have medical aid cover to start with.
So, what happens when we find ourselves in need of a medical procedure, follow-up procedure or an aesthetic treatment (such as specialist dentistry, hair restoration or IVF) that isn’t covered by medical aid? We end up with aggravated anxiety, pain and stress.
