Group Medical Aid

Medical Aid for Employer Groups:

As part of our value added service, Ambiton also assists employers in managing the administration of their group medical aid needs.

You care about the sustained well-being of your employees – and we care about you. 

While there might be no immediate monetary advantage to a company for implementing an Employer Group Medical Aid Scheme, the latent benefits of retaining key staff - and fostering a "preferred employer" mentality - cannot be overlooked. We believe this benefit will go a long way to adding value to your employees and to your business alike.

When it comes to applying for group membership, there are certain conditions to be met:

  1. Membership must be a compulsory condition of employment, as set out by you, the employer
  2. Employees must join the scheme within 30 days of their permanent appointment. 
  3. Please remember, a company must have a minimum of 50 or more main members to qualify for this service through Ambiton.

The benefit of becoming a Status C employer group is that all underwriting is based on the demographics of that company. 

This means that your employees will not have the hassle of any medical questionnaires or penalties that may relate to them, should they apply in their personal capacity, provided that they apply for membership within the pre-set period.

Once your employer group reaches 35 or more members, in terms of additions or withdrawals to the scheme, Ambiton will appoint a personal billing specialist to assist in managing your group’s billing needs. 

What’s more, in order to keep employees up to date with scheme benefits, we will arrange special ‘wellness days’ annually upon your request.

For the sake of your people – and for positive employee engagement within your business – we encourage you to consider embarking on this venture. 

If you have any questions or concerns about this facility, an Ambiton specialist will be happy to assist you. We look forward to dealing with you in the near future.
