Discovery medical scheme: Increase in hospital admission fees

Discovery medical scheme announced at a very late stage that patients signing in at certain hospitals would have to pay an extra R5000 or go to an approved clinic.

The arrangement will be from February 1, 2019 and doctors are not happy with the announcement. Experts point out that the medical scheme is apparently more focused on profit than on service delivery to patients.

Such new measures are found to be unacceptable by many members of the scheme, but it appears that Discovery’s management and decision makers have become deaf to any objections in this regard.
