Decent-quality health care is expensive, and while the government moves slowly with its National Health Insurance programme, South Africans have little alternative but to fork out for medical scheme cover. Medical schemes have their faults, but the cover you get as a member of a medical scheme is still the best available: it is regulated by the Medical Schemes Act, which requires a certain minimum level of cover, and this includes hospitalisation for emergencies and for a relatively comprehensive list of life-threatening conditions.

The November 2021 edition of IOL MONEY free digital magazine focuses on health care and what to consider when choosing your cover for 2022.
