Cimas Medical Aid Society has announced that it will provide COVID-19 medical aid cover to any of its members who test positive for the disease.
The cover caters for the treatment of members if they get infected with coronavirus and clearance tests at the end of their treatment.
The cover is subject to the benefit levels provided for in the member’s medical aid package and includes admission to any hospital approved for COVID-19 patients, treatment in an intensive care unit within the hospital, and all prescription drugs in and out of the hospital.

It also includes up to three clearance tests, in line with World Health Organisation guidelines.
Announcing the new measures, Cimas Medical Aid Society managing director Martin Mushambadope said the society was providing this COVID-19 cover to ensure the safety of its members.
We have now taken steps to ensure that any of our members who test positive for COVID-19, regardless of the medical aid package they are on, are covered for hospital admission, intensive care, medication and any other procedures related to their COVID-19 treatment up to the benefit limits of their package.
We are keen to ensure that members infected with the virus do not have to worry about facing a huge financial burden as a result of their hospitalisation.
