Your maternity benefit forms part of our day-to-day benefits offering you even more peace of mind when it comes to adding to your family.
The arrival of a little one can be exciting yet daunting at the same time. GetSavvi Health’s maternity benefit will help eliminate the stress of wondering how much the medical costs will be.
Maternity cover includes gynaecologists’ visits, ultrasound scans and the costs related to birth.
You’ll have the option of choosing one of the following birth procedures:
1 Cover of R20 000 for a normal birth. A normal birth is defined as when the infant is born spontaneously (without help) in the vertex position (head down) between 37 and 42 completed weeks of pregnancy.
2 Cover of R30 000 for a caesarean delivery (C-Section). A C-Section is a surgical procedure used to deliver a baby through incisions in the abdomen and uterus.
The waiting period for your new maternity benefit is 12 months, effective 1 January 2020. This means that you may access this benefit from 1 January 2021.
Current members still have the use of: a specialist gynaecologist, limited to two gynaecologist visits and/or two ultrasound scans per pregnancy. This benefit will be available until 31 December 2020 after which the new maternity benefit will apply.
