The medical aid industry is highly competitive in this day and age, especially among the open medical aids that do not have the guarantee of certain employees, industry organisations or unions to provide them with members. The key for these medical aids to sustain themselves is to provide a quality medical aid cover that is as good if not better than other open medical aids. However, the products on offer are pretty much the same among the different open medical aids without a significant difference in costs when compared to the benefits. Therefore some open medical aids provide additional perks like gym membership or cheap airline tickets in a bid to attract members.
