Mediclinic and MediFin team up to assist patients requiring surgical procedures
With medical insurance in South Africa becoming increasingly expensive, a growing number of people are turning to medical financing and private medical loans to cover the costs of healthcare procedures. As an authorised financial service and registered credit provider, MediFin understands the need for affordable healthcare and has recently announced a collaboration with Mediclinic Southern Africa.
Together, MediFin and Mediclinic are able to offer support to those who do not have medical aid, or who prefer not to immediately cover the costs of a surgical or diagnostic procedure.
Private Fixed Fees offered by Mediclinic Southern Africa
Mediclinic is a leading private hospital group operating in South Africa and Namibia.
Mediclinic offers private fixed fees for patients who will be paying upfront for their surgery. This may include those without medical insurance, those whose insurance does not cover specific procedures or where medical aid benefits have been exhausted for the year. Mediclinic’s private fixed fees are a quoted amount for a planned procedure that includes the hospital costs related to the clinical treatment received for the duration of stay in hospital, regardless of the level of care required.
As more patients are opting to pay for their surgical procedures over time, Mediclinic recently enhanced their fixed fee procedures for privately paying patients by collaborating with MediFin. To ensure they receive the highest quality service, MediFin is proud to offer financial loans to prospective patients relating to these Private Fixed Fee Procedures.
