Hi.

I am looking at changing over to Genesis medical aid from Medihelp.

I am considering the top plan from Genesis, Private Comprehensive.

Please share your eperiences with Genesis as I have never had issues with Medihelp, but Genesis seems to offer much greater value for money and much better benefits for similar pricing.

Thanks

Never had any issues with them.

No perks, but you know you'll be covered when a bad event hits.

Thanks, how long have you been with Genesis?

Do you also have GAP cover?
Been with them since I earned money so from about 2014.

Beem to the dentist and had 1 hospital visit. Generally I'm healthy.

I don't have gap cover (I should get gap cover).

not necessarily - they are the worst payers for "dread diseases" so you won't get the medicine you need

alternatively don't get cancer or any rare disease with specialised treatment

Hi.

Thanks.

Please elaborate a bit, from the brochure Oncology is covered.

What am I missing?

cancer is covered - yes

what is available in state facilities yes

You may need a "better newer" medicine which is not covered eg biologic therapy

Thanks,

So does most other medical aids cover better treatment options?
