Good Hope Medical Aid Society
The Good Hope Medical Aid Scheme was registered in 1976 as a result of an increasing need for a medical aid society, which would cater particularly for the needs of blue-collar workers.
At present the Society offers two traditional fee for service options – the Super 100 Option and the Budget 100 Option – as well as a capitated option, the Makoti Option, which offers comprehensive benefits, which are determined after a consultation process with Members, Employer Groups and Unions.The Good Hope Medical Aid Scheme has a solvency ratio in excess of 100% of annual contributions. All the benefits are designed in terms of the claiming patterns and requirements of blue-collar workers and one of the main priorities of the Board of Trustees is to ensure that all benefits are delivered in a manner which ensures accessibility of all services to the member and all his dependents at affordable rates. Contribution increases over recent years have been well below the market.
