January is the time to sign up to Affinity Health

14 January 2021 Affinity Health

As the world is experiencing a global pandemic, the topic of health care for 2021 is more relevant than ever. Affinity Health continues to provide affordable healthcare available to all South Africans with healthcare plans designed to suit your health and financial needs.

The uncertainty of 2020 touched so many parts of our lives, and medical insurance was no exception. Now we’re entering the New Year hopeful for what’s to come, accepting what’s uncertain and clearer than ever on how we want to take it day-by-day. And as always, Affinity Health is grateful to do it alongside you all.

January is the perfect time to assess your family’s healthcare plan. It’s more important now than ever to pick the right health cover, perhaps even more so with coronavirus adding another layer of factors to consider as you make your healthcare decisions.

Of course, you can’t predict whether you’ll be in an accident or get a severe illness. But you can take the necessary steps to ensure that should your family need help, your health insurance will be right there for you, every step of the way.

Health insurance is often seen as a significant expense for households, but it can be affordable if you select the right plan.

“For many of us, January feels like a blank canvas. Choosing to start this year to ensure you have great health cover,” says Murray Hewlett, CEO of Affinity Health.

“Last year may have been challenging, but 2021 is a fresh start. Start it by giving your health the protection it needs. Affinity health is passionate about quality healthcare. Affinity Health’s healthcare products are designed to protect you and your family when it matters most – even when times are tough.”

This year, Affinity Health clients can look forward to even more support not only with respect to trusted, efficient healthcare solutions, but also with ever increasing healthcare options, including day-to-day and hospital plans, as well as hospital cover for individuals and families in the event of any medical emergency and severe illness, with a much wider choice of hospitals and doctors than if you were a public patient.

In addition, Affinity Health also offers the added benefits of:

• Motor vehicle accident benefit
• Sub-acute hospitalisation
• Day clinic procedures
• Major trauma
• Casualty room treatment
• Trauma support services
• 24hr emergency
• Workers compensation benefit
• Daily illness hospitalisation
• Maternity
• Diagnostic procedures

“When it comes to choosing a healthcare plan, Affinity Health understands that no one size can fit all. Whether you are selecting a plan for the first time or evaluating how well your current plan is meeting your needs, take the time to understand and compare the benefits, services, and costs of each plan so you can find what will work best for you,” concludes Hewlett.
