Jacqui Rossouw: My biggest problem is the fact that your day-to-day benefits and medication [are] so little yet your hospitalisation and the other unnecessary stuff [are] enormous, knowing that people don't often end up in hospital. It's a rip-off.
Dillon Snyman: A friend of mine has to get life-saving endocrine surgery, but despite several documents from different specialists and doctors they simply refused to pay for it. They cannot understand that the operation is not for cosmetic purposes ... the doctors say that if he does not get it, he only has 2 to 3 years left to live – he is now only 28.
Michelle Scholtz Muller: My brother who is 21 recently found out he has an illness that starts in the jaw and if not treated with an op and braces it can cause brain damage that can lead to him being disabled. It costs R150000. Somehow the medical aid don't wanna cover, saying that it is cosmetic. How?
