There are 4 options on MEDIMED: Alpha, Medisave Max, Medisave Standard and Medisave Essential.
- Alpha – this is the most cost effective option on MEDIMED as the contributions are very low.
- Medisave Standard – this is a savings plan and the benefits are income category based.
- Medisave Max – this is structured in the same way as the Standard option concept, except that it has a higher chronic medication benefit and higher savings.
- Medisave Essential – this is a capitated option. This option is unfortunately only available to members in the Nelson Mandela Metropole as this is the area where we have specific contracts with the providers.
