Health is something that we take for granted and tend not to think about it until something goes wrong. At Pecuniary Consulting, we offer a wide variety of medical aid and gap cover options from leading product suppliers. As a result of our large product offerings, we are able to provide our clients with a variety of options that will assist them in meeting their healthcare needs.
Being part of a medical aid involves paying a monthly contribution to a medical scheme in return for financial cover that is required for medical treatment and related medical expenses. Pecuniary Consulting also offers group medical aid for employees.
• Network plans
These plans offer a lower premium, however clients are limited to network hospitals and have to consult with medical practitioners from an approved network.
• Hospital plans
These plans include cover in-hospital and some chronic benefits only.
• Savings plans
These plans include cover in-hospital, chronic benefits and a medical savings account. The medical savings account will be used to fund out of hospital expenses. If a balance remains in the savings account at the end of the year, this amount will be carried over and added to the following year benefits.
• Traditional plans
These plans include cover in-hospital, chronic benefits and out of hospital benefits. The referral system is used for out of hospital benefits. The scheme sets rand amounts for the various day-to-day benefits available for the year, which falls away at the end of each year if not used.
• Comprehensive plans
These plans include extensive cover in-hospital, chronic benefits and out of hospital cover.

Pecuniary Consulting also offers group gap cover at discounted rates. Terms and conditions apply.
