Relevant medical aid benefits at affordable rates
SAMWUMED’s two medical aid plans, Option A and Option B, are designed to meet the individual needs of our members, each representing different rates of contribution, and therefore a different level of medical aid cover.
Your medical aid cover can be paid from two sources: your employer's subsidy and your monthly salary. Contributions are calculated according to income and family size and are paid monthly, in arrears.
If you join after 31 March, you will be subject to pro-rated benefits. This means that you will only be entitled to benefits according to the contributions that you have made:
|January-March||100% of benefit|
|April-June||75% of benefit|
|July-September||50% of benefit|
|October-December||25% of benefit|
