Medisave Standard provides comprehensive in-hospital cover at the Medimed Scheme tariff with slightly lower benefit limits for certain benefits than the Medisave Max option. Hospital admissions are unlimited at any private hospital in terms of specific clinical guidelines and protocols. The Chronic Medication Benefit provides cover for all PMB’s (Prescribed Minimum Benefits) plus and extra R1,600 per beneficiary and R3,200 per family for additional chronic conditions. Day-to-Day Benefits are covered from the Savings Account (25% of your monthly contribution) and thereafter automatically from the Elective Benefit (R4,500 per beneficiary and R9,000 per family), offering you the flexibility of managing your own out of hospital costs.
