If I am referred for treatment in the RSA, but I do not need to be hospitalised or treated in a recognised medical institution, do I need to pay for my accommodation?

Accommodation other than a recognised hospital/medical institution in the Republic of South Africa is a benefit restricted to the Gold, Platinum, Titanium, Silver and Hospital benefit options. This benefit is subject to the overall annual benefit. A specific amount will be paid per day per patient for accommodation other than a recognised hospital or medical institution.


The benefit will not be paid while the member/patient is still in hospital. This benefit is aimed solely at members who are not hospitalised but are required to attend treatment/consultations/examinations in hospital while referred to the Republic of South Africa for treatment. This benefit will only apply to treatment received in the Republic of South Africa and is subject to prior approval.
