The Medical Savings Account

We pay for your day-to-day medical expenses

The Medical Savings Account is an amount that we give you at the beginning of the year to pay for day-to-day medical costs, like doctor visits, x-rays and dentist visits.

The full amount is available to you at the beginning of the year. You pay towards it as part of your monthly contribution to the Medical Scheme. By the end of the year, you will have paid the full amount back to your Medical Savings Account.

We pay your day-to-day expenses from the available money in your Medical Savings Account. For certain items and conditions we pay from the Insured Procedures Benefit (see above) up to the limit, and then from your Medical Savings Account, if there are funds available.
