Medical Scheme Options for Individuals in South Africa


If you’re looking to join a medical scheme, it’s vital to first consider your options. There are many medical aid providers in South Africa, each with their own set of benefits, conditions for acceptance, and prices on packages.

So, how do you choose the best one for you?

Look for your preferred Designated Service Providers

A healthcare provider or group of providers selected by the Scheme as the first choice to supply its members with diagnosis, treatment and health products. It’s important to know whether a medical scheme covers treatment at the practitioners you prefer, and that the scheme offers options and facilities to get healthcare in close proximity to your home. KeyHealth’s DSP hospital network is extensive and offers many choices for members all over the country. Here are some of the DSPs where individuals can get treatment when choosing our medical aid options:

  • Akasia Clinic
  • Bayview Hospital
  • Carstenhof Clinic
  • Eugene Marais Hospital
  • Glynnwood Nursing Home
  • Horizon Eye Care Centre
  • Netcare Polokwane

See our full list of DSPs here.

To choose between the many medical scheme options available to South Africans, it’s a good idea to compare health plans. KeyHealth offers you a choice between 6 comprehensive options. Every option provides access to free additional benefits as well as unlimited cover for PMBs and chronic medication.

Our Origin option, for example, is one of KeyHealth’s plans. You can view the 2022 brochure directly on our website. This is one of our more basic cover plans. It includes an unlimited private hospital plan, specified day-to-day benefits, and covers the basic 26 chronic medical conditions. It also includes certain dental services on a provisional basis. See the services listed below:

  • Consultations
  • X-rays
  • Oral hygiene treatment
  • Fillings
  • Extractions

All of the above are subject to special conditions being met, which you can read about here. Additionally, all health plans we offer have the same three free additional benefits, as well as unlimited cover for PMBs and chronic medication.
