Is real medical aid just some pretty pay-off line or does it mean something? 

Well, yes it is pretty, but it also stands for everything we are and all that we do. Everyone throws words like truth, integrity and authenticity about, but how many really mean it?
For us, being real means that we stay true to our core business. We do what we do and do it well.

Fedhealth is famous for:

Being empathetic: Not forcing you to deal with expenses when you’re coping with the trauma of being hurt or sick in hospital through providing benefits like unlimited hospitalisation.

Understanding different needs: A growing family has different needs to that of an older couple whose children have left home. That’s why we pay for casualty treatment from Risk without asking you to fork out of your day-to-day benefits or even your own pocket.

Taking care of your money: We pay for specialised radiology from Risk; we cover Oral Contraceptives from Risk on most options; we treat post-hospital treatments like physio and x-rays as part of your in-hospital claim. In short, we do everything we can to make sure we don’t deplete your day-to-day benefits. Which means, if used correctly, your money goes further and there are less situations where you have to dip into your own pocket.

Being really cool: We can’t really help this, it just comes naturally. We are a young-at-heart medical aid with our finger on the pulse of trends, culture and society’s changing needs. We like to think that while we are progressive, modern and innovative we still understand medical aid better than most because of our history and experience.
