Our list of medical aids in South Africa are divided between the open schemes and restricted schemes. An open medical aid is one that is open to all South Africans who can pay for the membership. Restricted medical aids are only for people with a certain academic qualification, who works in specific industries, belong to certain professional associations or are employees of a certain company in South Africa.
