Your client’s receive payment before they see their doctor, they get to choose which doctor they see, and they access their medical insurance product right from the palm of their hand (brokers can manage their client’s portfolio through the broker login on the Oneplan portal). These are just some of the ways Oneplan is changing the way clients think about health insurance.
“We created Oneplan Health Insurance to serve as an affordable alternative to medical aid,” says Michael Otten, CEO of Oneplan. “There is a growing need in our country for access to private healthcare but the problem is not many can afford private medical treatment, let alone medical aid. So, we took health insurance one step further by offering a product that not only lets you go to a doctor of your choice, but fronts you with the cash you need before your visit. Now you can afford to see your doctor when you want.”
This works through Oneplan’s ‘Onecard’ system. The card is given to clients and is used in the same way as a debit card. In order for clients to preload funds, they simply login to the Oneplan app, load a claim and the funds are transferred to their Onecard within a minute to swipe at the doctor.
The Oneplan app is designed to assist clients with features that include an interactive chat function with a team of nurses. Clients are able to chat to Oneplan team members as well as access and manage their premiums from the palm of their hand, wherever they want, without incurring data costs. Each of the Oneplan health plans includes cover for doctor visits, prescription medication, routine care, maternity benefits, accident and illness cover and emergency services. Most importantly, they provide access to private hospitals.
Otten adds: “Oneplan Health Insurance is so much more than a hospital plan, with a range of cover options and plans to choose from. You get the best of private healthcare at the price you can afford. We believe in continuously working to make our insurance better for our clients because our goal is to make today better.”
Oneplan is administered by Oneplan Underwriting Managers, an authorised financial services provider. It is not a medical aid scheme but a short-term insurance product underwritten by Bryte Insurance.
