So you’ve just landed your dream job and the first thing that comes to mind are the amazing shopping sprees, or that fast car you’ve had your eye on. Unfortunately, the last thing that comes to mind is medical aid. In today’s world one cannot afford not to have medical aid due to the expenses incurred on a daily basis. Most young professionals barely consider it until tragedy strikes and hospital bills start piling up.
These days people insure almost everything because as a person your personal valuables matter to you. The question you need to ask is, shouldn’t my health matter too? If a painting can cost you R15 000, which you could easily loose should your house burn down, you’d make sure that you insure it. Shouldn’t you do the same for your health?
Getting medical aid is like getting insurance for your health. You no longer have to worry about paying for every medical cost such as over-the-counter meds or the dreaded hospital stay which can easily amount to R2 000 to R5 000 a day. Just like you made the decision to get the sports car or dream house, make a decision and get medical aid. It’s the best investment money can buy. At the end of the day it’s your health and your body, and you only live once, so make it count!
