Medical Aid for Pregnancy and When Already Pregnant

The bottom line is that no medical in South Africa covers the pre-existing pregnancy costs if a woman joins a scheme once already pregnant. Certain mitigating circumstances may be taken into consideration to acquire cover but this is rare. However, this should not detract pregnant women from joining a medical aid immediately. The cover on medical aid for the newborn baby, non-pregnancy costs and future pregnancies still makes medical aid a sensible choice.
