Frequently Asked Questions

Currently no other insurer offers Health Insurance as flexible and affordable as this. Read some of our Frequently Asked Questions below:

Health insurance is a contract with an insurance company, which agrees to pay some or all of your medical bills based on your “coverage,” or the terms of your policy. In exchange, the insurer is paid a set amount of money — a “premium” — on a regular basis. Most Swazis have health insurance, either through their employer’s group plan or through buying their own individual policy. Others are covered under public “safety net” programs such as Medicaid and Medicare.

Cover will depend on the policy you choose and the amount that you pay, but it may include:

  • Outpatient treatments
  • Day-patient treatments
  • In-patient treatments

No. A taxi is not an ambulance. An ambulance has the necessary equipment to take care of you in an emergency whilst in the journey to hospital. Taxi’s do not offer that service.

Client should inform us of their preferred service provider at onboarding stage. However, should it be the case, the client may come to claim back their refund using the claiming procedure outlined in Question 2 above.
