The Latest News: 26/11/2020

  Posted On:   Nov 26, 2020


As we all begin to wind down to the end of 2020, after an especially challenging year, it seems apt that we pause to reflect on some of the “good news” stories that have emerged.

Despite the rapid onset of both COVID-19 and the extended lockdown HEALTH SQUARED certainly proved its mettle by:

  • Being one of the first Medical Schemes to cover COVID-19 testing even if the tests came back negative.
  • Providing our members with free face masks to ensure their health and safety.
  • Offering payment relief to our members during lockdown.
  • Supporting our members with free wellbeing benefits to help them cope during these stressful times.
  • Assisting many small businesses through the Small Business Relief Fund.
  • Being one of the few Medical Schemes to offer a ZERO percent increase on certain of our options, without compromising on our members’ benefits.

It is these efforts, and partnering with various associations that have enabled us to live up to our ethos of: preparing for today, in order to prosper tomorrow.

To join a Medical Scheme that places people above profits, and ensures that you are covered from every angle, go to or call 021 918 6210.

We are looking forward to an even more successful and prosperous 2021, where collectively we will continue to expand and thrive.
