Nowadays it is not always possible to be physically close to the people we care for due to Covid-19 risk. We are all concerned for the health and wellbeing of the people in our lives, and it is always reassuring to know that there are options to ensure access to practical private medical care when it is needed most.
Several members of Deshni Subbiah’s family recently tested positive for Covid-19, forcing those who had been in close contact with them to self-isolate.
“My sister was very concerned about us, especially since she could not come to support us in person because we were isolating. She decided to purchase the NetcarePlus GP consultation vouchers so that each affected member of our family could consult a medical professional safely from home.”
The NetcarePlus brand, an innovative products division within the Netcare Group, has introduced pioneering products to enable employers and individuals to purchase healthcare and insurance services as and when required, either for themselves or someone else. These products can either serve as stand-alone options for those who are uninsured or as a practical add-on to existing cover.
It is quick and easy to arrange a prepaid doctor’s consultation for yourself or someone else, even if they are on the other side of the country. For as little as R290 for a virtual GP consultation, R350 for an in-person consultation or R430 for a GP consultation plus medicine, these as well as the newly launched prepaid optometry vouchers for eye examination and prescription glasses can be purchased conveniently here.
The prepaid vouchers are valid for up to three years and are redeemable for appointments with healthcare providers on the NetcarePlus network. Conveniently, the vouchers can also be given to another person to use with the voucher code sent via SMS.
Fortunately, the family has since recovered. According to Subbiah, it was reassuring to know that her family had the doctor’s appointment vouchers already paid for and ready to use in this stressful time. “It was very simple to use and an excellent service.”
NetcarePlus recently introduced emergency cover to ensure quality assistance and private medical care in the event of an accident or trauma for yourself, a family member or employees.
Underwritten by Hollard, NetcarePlus Accident and Trauma Cover provides a range of private quality services for those difficult times, including access to unlimited in-hospital treatment for up to 90 days and related medical services like pathology and radiology, as well as Netcare 911 transportation to a network hospital and stabilisation at the scene.
The cover also includes daily cash payments if the accident or trauma results in the person being hospitalised for two days or more to help pay for any non-medical expenses that may arise, as well as 24-hour trauma counselling services.
