Medshield Medical Aid Insurance


You never know when you or your family member/s may require medical care or treatment, and most importantly, whether you will have funds available to cover the costs. Medshield is a healthcare fund where all members contribute towards the fund on a monthly basis to cater for medical cover should the need arise.

We offer Superior Quality at a Great Price

Each of our options offers affordably priced benefits. We continuously review and improve the range of benefits, in each option, to bring you what you really need – Your kind of care. Many of our competitors place emphasis on the reward programmes they offer their members. Instead, Medshield focus on how we can improve the quality of healthcare you receive, tailored to suit your specific, individual needs.
