Making better choices
is not always this easy

 

Medical Aid

South Africa has about 160 medical schemes totalling around 7 million beneficiaries. The total annual contribution to medical schemes is around R35-billion (according to the Council for Medical Schemes - 2006). Take into account that South Africa has a population of more than 55 million people!

Less than 16% of South Africa's citizens belong to a medical scheme.

Not all medical schemes are open to the public.  In fact, of the 82 medical schemes, only about 22 are open to the public.  This number might decrease over the years as the larger schemes take over the smaller ones.

According to 2016/17 CMS annual report at the end of 2016 there were

  • 82 medical schemes
  • 60 restricted
  • 22 open schemes
  • Approximately 8 900 000 beneficiaries
