Medical Aid Schemes for Employees

A medical aid scheme helps members to pay for their health needs, such as nursing, surgery, dental work and hospital accommodation. It is a type of insurance scheme. For this service, members and their employers pay regular contributions to the scheme. The law says that medical aid schemes must pay for medical expenses such as hospital, doctor and dentist bills, medicines and other medical services like special dentistry and physiotherapy. Some schemes offer more than this.
