If I have Critical Illness Cover, do I also need medical aid?
The short answer is YES.The long answer? Still yes! 🤣 While medical aid pays for your medical expenses, Critical Illness Cover helps with the other expenses that you might have if you were to be diagnosed with cancer or one of the other severe conditions we cover. The cover includes things like the person who’ll take care of you 👩🏽⚕️, adjustments to your house or expensive treatment that medical aids might not cover. Medical aids have lots of rules about the types of expenses covered, where you can get treatment, the number of times you have to go the gym, etc. But basically it puts you in the same financial position you were in before having to pay those medical expenses.
