GP Network Plan Comparison - 2014 Plans

Network Plans are generally designed for younger people entering the medical aid market for the first time or for those clients that have a limited medical aid budget.

The Medical Aid companies generally contract with a group of hospitals and GP’s on a capitation* basis and in this way are able to offer medical cover at more affordable rates.

*Capitation means that a member will be able to visit his/her chosen GP without having to pay for the consultation. The Medical Aid agrees to pay a monthly amount to the GP, regardless of how often the member visits that GP.

Members generally need to work through their GP (the Gatekeeper), regardless of the particular ailment.

With spiraling medical aid inflation , the Network Plans have become far more popular in the last few years.
