Medshield Medical Scheme’s member-centric options remain very competitive, providing great value for money, while being a responsible value contributor to the SA health-care marketplace.

Now Medshield has launched MediCurve, a quality health-care plan from the Medshield benefit cover options that cater to another important demographic group.

Medshield’s most affordable plan allows first-time medical aid buyers access to great cover without any financial strain on their day-to-day lives. This plan would give any parent peace of mind that their young adult has independent and reliable medical cover. Personally, I am really excited about this new plan. I trust it enough for my own daughter.

Who is MediCurve for?

Life in the digital age is fast-paced, especially for young professionals who are often incredibly busy and rushed — juggling responsibilities, running errands and keeping active, while also trying to plan for the future. MediCurve provides them with first-time medical cover that fits perfectly into their lifestyle.

Medshield wanted to create a seamless online sign-up process for young adults to acquire their health care quickly, simply and conveniently. MediCurve is the perfect solution for someone who is young, in good health and always on the go. To sign up for MediCurve, select “Click for Cover” on our website and online platforms. This drives home the ease of use and accessibility of health cover with Medshield.

A young and healthy person might think they don’t need health-care cover. But things can change in a blink of an eye, and then they might not have the funds readily available to cover the costs required. With that in mind, we considered the financial realities of healthy, young adults who are just starting out in the working world with entry-level salaries. MediCurve offers great cover for R1,398 a month.

Young adults often shy away from a timely visit to the doctor because of the consultation fees. This increases the window of infection and often leads to greater problems when they visit a doctor only once symptoms are severe. MediCurve offers free virtual consultations through the SmartCare Benefits, allowing members to get treatment for common illnesses quickly. Broadly speaking, we are protecting the youth of our nation and contributing positively to GDP — health is wealth.

MediCurve is one of the many plans and measures the scheme offers to support and give value to members. Medshield has partnered with specific providers and networks to ensure that the health-care expenses of our members remain contained, that they are not liable for any unforeseen co-payments, and that their disposable income does not shrink due to unplanned health-care expenses.

At Medshield, our vision is: “Partnering with you towards your personal health care and wellbeing”, and in these challenging times, we remain committed to placing the wellbeing of our members at the centre by paying special attention to their needs.
