Medical Aid patients:
Hospital tariffs are charged according to a scale of benefits. Some medical aid funds require their members to pay a co-payment. Patients should be aware of this so that payment thereof can be made by the patient on admission. Patients are to arrange with their medical aid for a medical aid authorisation number regarding their hospitalisation. This may take some time so patients should ensure that they initiate the procedure well in advance. Admission without authorisation can have serious financial implications.
Bedford Gardens Clinic charges medical aid/medical scheme tariffs. Private patients are required to pay a pre-admission fee and are advised to contact the hospital’s accounts department prior to admission to determine estimated cost.
