What is DomestiCare?
DomestiCare is a premium, private healthcare product available to South African domestics working in households and small to medium-sized businesses.
DomestiCare gives domestic workers access to private doctors and clinics in their neighbourhood or surrounding areas, including visits to general practitioners (GPs), pathologists, radiologists, dentists, optometrists and more, as well as providing certain maternity and HIV benefits.
Both the employer and employee benefit from DomestiCare.
It’s a great option from the domestic worker’s perspective, as it means no more waiting for hours in queues to see doctors at state facilities and no more inconvenient, expensive travelling.
DomestiCare also provides peace-of-mind to employers who know the impact a sick domestic worker can have on their business or home, preventing the spreading of illnesses and infections to other employees and children, reducing the amount of time taken off from work to recover and eliminating the need to hire expensive temporary staff.
How is such affordable healthcare possible?
DomestiCare is an occupational health solution offered through the private medical practitioners of the CareCross Health Group, the largest national network of GPs, radiologists and pathologists who embrace the concept of affordable healthcare.
This means that radiology and pathology tests, if requested by the GP, are covered as well as acute medication required for treating, for example, short-term illnesses.
