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. Our pre-admission staff are available to assist you with this task. Although we cannot get the authorisation number for you, we 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 that you may have in relation to your procedure. Please record this information and feel free to discuss this with our pre-admission staff.
