A large number of South Africans who travel regularly by car, foot, motorcycle or public transport, including taxis, do not have medical aid. As a result they do not have the much-needed funds to access a private hospital in the event of an injury due to a motor vehicle accident (MVA).
The fact that access to a Private Hospital can be the difference between life and death in South Africa, means all of these individuals should have access to private healthcare in the event of a car accident; however such a benefit has become a luxury that few can afford. Angel Assist is a service that allows for its members to be granted access to any private medical facility following a Motor Vehicle Accident.
If you or a loved one spends a lot of time on the road, this is the insurance cover to get.
accidentANGELS™ is a service that ensures that each of their members that are involved in a Motor Vehicle Accident are Guaranteed to receive treatment in a private medical facility. If you are a medical aid member who tries not to exhaust your medical savings but would like the comfort of knowing that you will be fine should there be a shortfall, accidentANGELS™ can take care of this.

How does it work?
On receiving notification of an accident, ER24 verifies membership and ensures emergency transportation to the nearest suitable private hospital.
The injured party is stabilised in the trauma unit to the appropriate level of casualty benefit.
If hospitalisation is required after the injured party has been stabilised, admission to hospital is provided up to the level of benefit.
Why Is The Service Needed?
Large numbers of South Africans are not covered by a Medical Aid. This leaves them at the mercy of a state hospital should they be involved in an accident, a system which is oft-times overloaded and leaves patients vulnerable.
