    One of the biggest nightmares facing South Africans who have medical aid cover is the shortfall they have to pay themselves for hospital treatments.

    So many unsuspecting medical aid members believe they are covered for 100% of the cost of hospitalisation.

    After all, that is what is stated on their medical aid policies.

    What they do not know is that medical schemes work according to a set tariff rate.

    Members of the medical profession, on the other hand, are under NO OBLIGATION to stick to those rates.

    In fact, it is now common practice for the medical profession to charge patients up to 500% MORE than the tariff paid by their medical schemes.

    The policyholder is responsible for paying in the difference between what their medical schemes allow and what medical professionals and hospital charge.

    So this can have huge financial impacts on cash-strapped families.
