OUT-OF-HOSPITAL BENEFITS

TARIFF SHORTFALLS

Shortfalls are the difference between what specialists charge and what your medical scheme pays for these services, often resulting in large shortfalls.

  • Up to 500% of medical scheme tariff fee to cover surgical procedures/treatment and medical expense shortfalls received as an out-patient.
  • Limited to a maximum compensation limit of one times the medical scheme tariff fee if a non-designated service provider is used on a medical aid plan driven by a designated service provider group network.
  • Limited to certain diagnostic and medical procedures/treatment.
CO-PAYMENTS & DEDUCTIBLES

A co-payment or deductible is a fixed, upfront fee, payable by the member on hospital admission and applies to procedures and certain diagnostic services.

  • Includes MRI, CT and PET scans.
  • Limited to certain diagnostic and medical procedures/treatment such as gastroscopies and colonoscopies, home births and dialysis treatment.
ACCIDENTAL CASUALTY

If you have an accident and need emergency treatment at a hospital casualty ward, most medical schemes will not pay these costs from the hospital benefit. The accidental casualty benefit is for emergency out-patient treatment in a hospital casualty ward as a direct result of accidental harm, such as bodily injury caused by sudden violent, unintentional, external and physical means.

  • Up to a maximum benefit of R12 800 per policy, per annum.
  • Covers the actual cost of the services delivered in the casualty ward, less any amount paid by your medical scheme from risk pool benefits (i.e. not from medical savings).

  • Covers the purchase of external appliances up to a maximum of R2 000 per policy per annum.
