Is it worthwhile to have a hospital plan?
A hospital plan gives you basic financial cover for certain in-hospital procedures. It isn’t as comprehensive as medical insurance, but is offered by a not-for profit medical scheme and will cover your ‘in hospital’ expenses.
Hospital plan quotes differ from provider to provider, who all set their own limits and exemptions when negotiating cover. Whether or not you will have to pay any additional fees for procedures, will depend on the plan you have chosen.
The best hospital plan in South Africa will ensure that when you are admitted to hospital, whether it be for a procedure, an accident or illness, your bills will be paid in full. Make sure that you are familiar with the procedures that are covered before you sign with a particular hospital plan provider. Be prepared and check beforehand if you are required to make a co-payment for certain procedures.
