First Health Finance began operating in 2008, and introduced South Africa to the concept of “Patient Finance”. First Health Finance provides medical payment plans to patients unable to afford the upfront cost of a medical procedure, or where medical aid does not cover the entire cost of the procedure. FHF finances all types of medical procedures including plastic surgery, dental procedures, ophthalmic procedures, hearing aids, fertility treatment hair restoration and more.
Payment plans are affordable and flexible, and amounts financed range between R5, 000 and R60, 000, however larger amounts are also considered. The payment terms range between 6 and 36 months, ensuring all levels of affordability are catered for.
Our turnaround times are exceptional, and our aim is to provide clients with a very personal service throughout the application process, up until payment is made directly by FHF to the practitioner. There are no reference numbers provided, no automated machines to talk to, just plain old personal service, from a real person!
