Product info • 08 May 2017
There’s no better time to be more savvy with your and your family’s health than now.

GetSavvi Health provides peace of mind through access to private quality healthcare and emergency cover, allowing you to enjoy good health.

We offer our member – who had previously been unable to afford it – access to affordable health cover.  

Why choose GetSavvi Health?

Are we a medical aid?

No. We’re a health insurance, not a medical aid. You can read more about the difference between the two here.

However, GetSavvi Health can be used in conjunction with a medical aid. 

If you’ve ever felt frustrated because of your medical aid’s limited day-to-day benefits, then GetSavvi Health is the ideal addition to your private medical cover. 

Don’t be caught without cover for doctors’ consultations or depleted medical savings funds midway through the year. GetSavvi Health’s ample day-to-day benefits include doctors’ visits.

Our Benefits include:

At GetSavvi Health we strive to offer you great products at an affordable rate. Because your family’s health is our priority.
