Medical Aid Patients
Different medical aid and medical insurance schemes have different payment restrictions and benefit limits in terms of procedures covered. Please verify these and, in particular your benefit restrictions in respect of prosthesis e.g. hip and knee replacement, cardiac prosthesis and other special major surgery, prior to your admission, as the hospital cannot accept responsibility for charges levied outside the negotiated benefits rate. Queries in this regard must be addressed with the medical aid, medical insurer and/or practitioner directly.
Kindly take note that you remain personally responsible for your account. Any excess on medical aid claims shall be payable to the hospital upon presentation of the invoice.
Notwithstanding the fact that the hospital may submit and/or assist with the submission of claims to a medical aid, it shall ultimately remain the responsibility of the patient and/or ultimately guarantor to ensure that such claim is lodged timeously and in accordance with the rules of the applicable medical aid.
