Genesis Medical Aid Plans

  • Genesis - Private Choice

    The Genesis Private Choice hospital plan supplies unlimited in-hospital benefits at 100% of scale of benefits at any provider of your choice. Cover includes some basic dentistry. This is a good family plan, with only the first child paying the full premium with a flat charge of R325 per child applying thereafter.

  • Genesis - Private

    Genesis Private shares all the major benefits of Private Plus and Private Comprehensive, including limited cover for dialysis and mental health. This is a good plan for big families that only require a hospital plan, as only the first child pays, with R365 per child payable thereafter.

  • Genesis - Private Plus

    Genesis Private Plus offers all the attractive benefits of the Private Comprehensive package, exlcuding the medication benefit which is instead paid out of a savings account. This is an ideal plan for large families that do not require much out of hospital cover, with the full medical aid rate only applied to one child, and all other children covered at R365 per child.

  • Genesis - Private Comprehensive

    Private Comprehensive is a good option for big families requiring good out of hospital cover. Hospital benefits are unlimited while the plan also offers extensive day-to-day cover for consultations and medication.
