DURBAN - uKheshe, the QR cash card, has announced the launch of the uKheshe Health Benefits card, a medical aid solution that will cost R99 per month.
Available from 1st of July, uKheshe Health offers a host of benefits that aim to bring greater healthcare inclusion for individuals and families, including cover for private ground and air ambulance, private stabilisation and hospitalisation cover as a result of an accident or emergency.
Clayton Hayward, co-founder, uKheshe, said that the launch of the uKheshe Health Benefits card is a long overdue inexpensive solution especially given that only 13 percent of South Africans have some form of private medical aid or medical insurance.
Hayward said, "Affordable private healthcare has largely remained inaccessible to a large majority of South Africans. uKheshe Health is welcome relief for those in need of essential cover and previously had no choice but to rely on the overburdened public healthcare sector".
With two levels of card, individual cover and the family card (covers family of six), with benefits of R325 000, uKheshe Health caters to every need and income level.
