6 Things you did NOT know about GetSavvi Health

Product info • by Paul De Beyer • 04 February 2022

As you know, we’re big fans of the “6 Things” articles around here. Not only are they great fun to write, but they really do make for quick, easy reading.

Most of the time we try to get the best possible information across to you, in as easy-to-read a format as possible.

This time it’s a little bit different.

While we think that GetSavvi Health is an awesome product, and hopefully you do too, there are a few things that seemingly go under the radar. This time out we want to shine the light on 5 things you probably didn’t know about GetSavvi Health, and how they are pretty awesome for our members. 

1) Maternity cover for ALL

Pregnancy is one of the most magical things a family can experience, with all the fun that come with welcoming that little bundle of joy into your lives. What isn’t so fun are the costs involved with pregnancy and childbirth.

The costs alone can often leave families struggling to make end’s meet, and take away from what should be the best time of their lives. GetSavvi Health aims to ensure that, no matter what plan you’re on, you get maternity cover.

This means that you can be on the most basic cover offered by GetSavvi Health, and you will still have access to maternity benefits.

2) A death is hard enough

There are few times in life where everyone deserves a break and losing a loved one is exactly one of those times.

The pain of a loss should not be compounded by the anxiety and stress of worrying about how to pay for the funeral costs. GetSavvi Health wants to make sure that you never feel this way, which is why every single one of our plans come with comprehensive funeral cover.

This means that every dependant on your GetSavvi Health plan is covered if any unfortunate or tragic circumstances occur. 

3) Mental Well-being is just as important as physical wellness

Often we forget that our mental health is just as important as our physical health. We’re very quick to go to our pharmacist or doctor for help with a physical ailment, but simply don’t give our mental health the same level of care.

GetSavvi Health wants to ensure that you have the means to see to your mental well-being, which is why we’ve put the necessary tools in place to help you if you need them.

All GetSavvi Health members have access to our Member Wellness Programme, giving you the chance to talk to accredited, licensed personnel should you ever need it. 

 4) You don’t have to choose!

A little-known fact is that you can have both medical aid AND medical insurance at the same time. This is especially helpful for those who are looking for both primary cover, as well as the potential of specialist cover for themselves and/or their family members.

While this option can be more expensive, it does allow you complete peace of mind, as well as two different styles of payment. Medical insurance has the added bonus of often paying out directly into your bank account, allowing you to use the funds on specific payments where you feel it necessary. 

5) Sign up now and don’t stress

For many people, the thing that puts them off medical aid or medical insurance are the waiting periods. This leaves them feeling like they’re not covered, despite paying premiums for months on end.

GetSavvi Health members are covered for emergency hospital cover from the very moment the plan starts. This means that there is no waiting period and you have complete peace of mind in knowing that you’re covered in the event of an emergency.

6) All GetSavvi Health members, irrespective of what plan you’re signed up for, have access to counselling and/or treatment

Use the GetSavvi Health Member Wellness Programme for a more holistic you . The programme offers counselling and advice that’s voluntary, private and confidential! The whole aim of this benefit is to give you, as a member, the means to apply a more holistic approach to your health instead of simply visiting a GP. 

Members can get help with coping with stress, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), addiction and way more.
