Pregnant and no medical aid
Hi, is it possible to join a medical aid after falling pregnant?
What will the penalities be and how much cover will I get? The pregnancy wasn't planned and was actually living overseas at the time and on returning to SA found out that was/am pregnant?

Hello Deb.

it will be possible to join a medical scheme without waiting periods. Just go to and request a quotation and mention how many weeks you are pregnant.
