Some people question the fact that the company
offer so many different plans. The company realizes, however, that not everybody can afford comprehensive cover and

Why Is It So Important To Have
a Private Health Plan?
The public health service simply cannot cope
with the extraordinary demands placed upon it. South Africa is home to many needy people that have no choice other
than to rely on the state for health care. In order to cope with these enormous demands certain compromises must be
made in terms of the type of treatment offered, access to specialist care and even the availability of certain
types of medicines.
Those who want the best possible care when it
becomes necessary to be hospitalized are better off with health plans that will cover the expenses in a private
health care facility. These plans are more affordable that comprehensive cover, but they do make provision for
emergency treatment and superior care in a private hospital.
What Types of Hospital Plans
Are Offered by Liberty Life?
The Liberty Medical Aid division of Liberty
Life offers three different plans, namely the Gold Focus Select Plan, the Gold Focus Plan and the Platinum Focus
Plan. Here is some more information about each of these plans:
· Young, fit
and healthy people that do not suffer from any serious condition will find the Gold Focus Select Plan to be ideal. It is affordable and it
provides for cover when care is sought from approved service providers and specific state facilities. In
cases of accidents full cover is provided if the patient is hospitalized. The plan does not include a savings
account, but members may choose an out-of-hospital extension to the plan when the need arises. This option
will add treatment at casualty departments, scans and many one day
Gold Focus Plan is very similar, but it provides for
care at any private hospital. Any member that lands up in hospital due to an accident is fully covered for all
in-hospital expenses, including surgery and treatment programs. The plan also cover the all expenses for treatment
of chronic conditions but it is important to note that only approved medical rates are paid. If the final cost is
above the rate, then the member will have to pay the balance.
· Then there
is the Platinum Focus Plan. It is a cut above the
other two plans because it makes provision for the on-going treatment and management of chronic conditions. Members
of this plan are able to choose any hospital they want and they may even decide upon the specific specialist from
which they desire treatment. This plan also offers the option to expand the cover to include out-of-hospital
expenses and a wide range of preventive treatment options.
