What is preadmissions
If you are a medical aid patient, it is very important for you to get authorisation for your procedure before you book into the Hospital. The pre-admission staff are available to assist you with this task. Although the Hospital cannot get the authorisation number for you, staff will help you to contact your medical aid and ensure that you have all the necessary information needed to facilitate the process.
Your medical aid will also provide you with information about any short payments, co-payments or limits you may have in relation to your procedure. Please record this information and feel free to discuss this with pre-admission staff.
