MEMBERSHIP OPTION A
YOUNGER MEMBERS AND YOUNG FAMILIES
With an annual limit of R750 000 per family, this option is suited for members who need moderate day-to-day medical care, but require Comprehensive Maternity Benefits as well as good Hospital care. It is an ideal cover for young families still planning to have children or those with young children.
This Option also gives members access to a wide variety of Early Detection Tests through the Comprehensive Preventative Care Programme.
For your convenience, you can apply to become a member of SAMWUMED by completing our online membership application form.
Your medical aid cover can be paid from two sources: your employer’s subsidy and your monthly salary. Contributions are calculated according to income and family size and are paid monthly, in arrears.
If you join after 31 March, you will be subject to pro-rated benefits. This means that you will only be entitled to benefits according to the contributions that you have made:
|January – March||100% of benefit|
|April – June||75% of benefit|
|July – September||50% of benefit|
|October – December||25% of benefit|
