Can’t afford medical aid? Enter the Oyi medical card (it even pays for sangomas)
The Oyi medical card is a savings card, restricted to medical spending, that allows private access to healthcare.
All doctors and pharmacies accept them; you are not limited to a networked service provider.
Members may use it to pay for medical services such as scans, tests, physiotherapy, biokinetics, psychology, etc.
There’s no waiting period and no claiming; access is immediate.
Oyi aims the card mainly at employers with staff members not covered by medical aid.
Members may choose how much money they load on the card – whether monthly or as a lump sum.
The card can also complement an existing medical aid.
Savings may be used towards copayments.
