Healthcare is a fundamental human requirement across the world. In South Africa, the need for quality health services has grown in tandem with a fast growing population. The delivery of quality healthcare to this growing population has often been determined by the factor of affordability. For those with the enough financial resources, private healthcare is always the option and for those with insufficient finance, the option is public healthcare. One health institution playing a critical role in this regard and closing the gap between the haves and have nots is First Health Finance (FHF).
First Health Finance (FHF) was established in 2008 and introduced the concept of “patient finance” which provides medical payment plans to patients who can’t afford the upfront cost of medical procedures or where medical aid does not cover the entire cost of the procedure. The FHF medical payment plans finance all kinds of medical procedures including plastic surgery, dental procedures, ophthalmic procedures, hearing aids, fertility treatment, hair restoration etc.
FHF provides medical finance with amounts ranging between R5,000 and R60,000 with larger amounts a possibility to be considered. Repayment periods for this finance run between 6 and 36 months. With a personalised touch added to the application process, payments made by clients get transmitted directly to the medical practitioner. Pre -payments are also accepted and there are no early settlement penalties.
First Health Finance can indeed be trusted to facilitate quality healthcare. FHF can be contacted on 0800212537.
