Private health insurance allows you to have peace of mind that your healthcare needs will be taken care of in an efficient and timely manner and protects against unforeseen events.
But what are the advantages of having health insurance?
Extensive medical network: Access to a huge range of GPs and specialists throughout the network. As well as contracted providers, Sanitas owns many specialised centres and clinics.
Rapid care and diagnoses: In most cases you can go directly to a specialist without having to obtain a referral from a GP first. This saves on additional appointments and means that you receive your diagnosis and treatment as quickly as possible.
Free choice of doctor: within the extensive medical network, our policies allow you to choose the professional that you want to use.
Shorter waiting lists: Private clinics and hospitals have less pressure on their time and resources so waiting times to see doctors or specialists or to undergo diagnostic tests or surgery are minimal.
Flexible schedules: With private facilities you can choose appointments at a time that suits you and your lifestyle.
Second medical opinion: In the case of a serious illness you have the option to seek a second medical opinion with regard to your treatment.
Comfortable hospitalisation, for you and your family. You are provided with a single room when hospitalised and in many cases, arrangements can be made for a relative to stay with you.
Additional options: Tailor your policy to your personal requirements by choosing from our extensive range of extra cover options.
Dental Insurance: Many of our plans include dental cover or you can add dental cover to your policy if it is not included. This can save you up to 40% on dental treatments.
Alternative Medicine: Sanitas now offers the option to include alternative medicine treatments that are not offered in the public health system, such as acupuncture or homeopathy.
Tax advantages for companies: if health insurance is contracted for employees, these costs can be offset via your company´s corporate tax return.
