What do hospital plans cover?
Hospital plans cover only the treatment costs if you’re admitted to hospital. These costs include things like hospital fees, anaesthetists and specialists’ fees for a hospital operation, and medication you’re given while you’re admitted. With a hospital plan, you’re responsible for day-to-day expenses such as a visit to your doctor or buying prescribed medication you may need. Because hospital plans offer a basic level of cover, they’re the cheapest of all medical aid plans available.
