Some of SA’s cheapest hospital plans









Medical scheme membership doesn’t come cheap and consequently many consumers are wondering about hospital plans, what they cover and what the cheapest ones are.

The medical scheme industry is full of jargon and benefit structures that often leave the man on the street confused and frustrated when it comes to understanding and accessing their benefits.

Read: Consider this when choosing a medical scheme

A hospital plan is offered by a registered medical scheme and should not be confused with hospital insurance or hospital cash-back plans. Medical schemes are regulated by the Medical Schemes Act, while the others fall under the umbrella of insurance products. A hospital plan has to pay for 270 Prescribed Minimum Benefits when treated in a hospital and for the treatment of 26 chronic conditions.

Where the difference comes in is that a hospital plan will pay up

Announcements:

COVID-19 Information:

  • Symptoms of fever, cough, and shortness of breath can be caused by the flu and the common cold as well as COVID-19. At this time, the flu presents a greater risk in the United States than COVID-19, however, that could change if COVID-19 starts circulating widely. VA encourages everyone to get a flu shot if they have not yet received one to protect against flu and to help minimize demand on health care services.
  • Veterans who have symptoms of fever, cough, and shortness of breath should call their local VA medical center before seeking care. VA’s phone- and video-based telecare services can be used to avoid exposure to additional germs, keep from spreading germs to others, and eliminate a trip to VA.
  • There is not yet a vaccine or medication to treat COVID-19. The best way to prevent an infection is to avoid being exposed in the

China Pledged to Build a New Hospital in 10 Days. It’s Close.

WUHAN, China — People desperate for treatment started descending on a new hospital that was mostly built in just 10 days to help cope with the outbreak of the new coronavirus in the central city of Wuhan on Monday.

Construction workers in hard hats, medical staff in hazmat suits, and men and women in army fatigues scrambled around the dusty site on Monday afternoon, dodging moving trucks, excavators and cranes. Workers were still trying to finish construction on the Huoshenshan Hospital — a name that means “Fire God Mountain” — even as the facility prepared to accept its first batch of patients, the official state broadcaster, China Central Television, reported.

Xue Ying, a resident of Wuhan, had driven to the new hospital hoping to find help for his increasingly unwell cousin. But city officials and signs on checkpoints have said the hospital would

As Patients Struggle With Bills, Hospital Sues Thousands

michael barbaro

From The New York Times, I’m Michael Barbaro. This is “The Daily.”

Today: for decades hospitals could assume that patients with jobs and health insurance would pay their medical bills. Sarah Kliff on why that’s no longer the case and the aggressive new way that hospitals are forcing those patients to pay up.

It’s Monday, December 2.

So Amanda is 41 years old. She lives in this tiny little town in rural Virginia called Norton.
