Health is akin to wealth. Your health at present will impact the wealth of your future. A productive life goes hand in hand with a healthy lifestyle.

It is almost guaranteed that you will need to call upon the services of the health sector at least once in your lifetime, but in most cases it will be multiple times along life’s journey. Realistically, illness or injury of some sort are usually unavoidable somewhere along the way.

As much as government facilities mean well, the truth is that the demand for their services way out-weighs their budget and ability to provide that service adequately.

Unfortunately, at most government facilities you are met with:

  • Under-staffing
  • Lack of Funds
  • Lack of space to house all of the ill and injured
  • Lack of basic amenities
  • Long waiting lists before even going through triage
  • Long waiting lists before procedures can be done

Private Hospitals are far more geared towards patient satisfaction, and go a long way towards making you as comfortable as possible while being treated. The needs of you and your family are prioritized.At private institutions you are generally met with:

  • Sufficient Staffing
  • Sufficient Housing for patients
  • Modern Amenities (in some instances they are borderline luxurious)
  • Sufficient triage times
  • Quick response in undertaking procedures.

As you can see from the above, the facility you want to be at, when ill, is a private clinic or hospital. BUT, there is one big con to this type of institution – it costs a fortune to be treated. If you are not on medical aid, you may be expected to pay 50% of the cost of the treatment up front as a deposit before they commence with it. The average operation in the private sector is around R 250 000. That is far beyond what most people can afford.

A medical aid plan can ease all of the pressures in this circumstance, to leave you and your family with peace of mind, that in the case of illness or an emergency, they will get the best treatment possible. Whether it is a comprehensive cover, (which will cover your doctors visits, medication and hospitalisation) or a hospital plan, (all emergencies or hospital admissions), Emryn Wealth’s professionally trained consultants will be able to find the fit for you and your loved ones.


  • When ones work is hazardous, as the risk is increased for accidental injury.
  • When family planning. Looking after your spouse on the medical front is a great way to show that you really care for them. When having children, private hospital rates are expensive for neonatal and post-natal facilities. Children are also quite prone to injury and illness in their formative years.
