Contact Numbers

In South Africa there are 96 medical schemes. Of these, 25 open medical aid schemes. This means that anyone can join them.

There are another 71 restricted schemes in South Africa. They are called restricted* because only employees of certain companies or industries can join them.

According to the SA Council for Medical Schemes, only 8,5 million of the 52,8 million South Africans belong to a medical aid scheme. The rest of the population relies on the public health system for their medical requirements.

If you do not have medical aid cover already, you should consider joining one, or at least get some hospital cover.

Here is a list of open medical aid schemes in South Africa, including phone numbers.
