BestMed Packages

A client has 10 easy to understand packages to choose from. BestMed’s packages are broken down into three parts. Beat policies for the young, Pace packages for the family and Pulse packages based on income and more mature clients.


Beat policies are targeted at the young individual that are starting out. A hospital plan only, being the first option. Then to a slightly better option for policy 2 including general practitioner visits.
A third option based on the needs of a young family. The fourth option coves more specialists to suit the growing family.


The Pace range also offers four packages. These packages are more family orientated. Pace 1 being your basic cover and moving to a more extensive day to day cover for Pace 2. if this still does not meet your needs then perhaps the more comprehensive cover in Pace 3 or 4 is for you.

The two other packages offered by Bestmed are the Pulse range. Pulse 1 is the income-based policy offering you more affordability. Suitable for students just entering the workforce Pulse 2 is the policy for the older generation. This offers unlimited cover for hospitalisation when you need it most.
