Medical Aid Information

 

Medical Aid clients will be charged according to the Life Healthcare scale of benefits, as negotiated by your medical aid. You are responsible for enquiring with your Medical Aid. The duration of your stay is dependant on your Medical Aid plan.

 In the event that you may need to undergo an emergency caesarean, your medical aid will be charged according to the Life Healthcare scale of benefits as negotiated by your medical aid.  Please note if you have a Foreign Medical Aid, Medical Insurance or Top Up Policies, please send us an email addressed to the Finance Department at genesisenquiries@lifehealthcare.co.za.  

You must have had consultations with either a private midwife of your choice or the in-house midwife before you can book your bed.

Bookings are done at our reception, where you will be asked to complete the necessary forms and provide your medical history. This must be done by the 36th week of pregnancy. Medical aid patients are responsible to obtain an authorisation number from their medical aid at the time of filling in their forms. You must bring along your ID books, as well as the person (if it is not you), who is the medical aid member. 

 Please note that women who have had a previous C-section and would like to try for a VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Caesarean), must use the services of a private midwife. We do not do VBAC's after two C-sections.

 You should contact your medical aid to obtain details of the billing and fees charged for private midwives or the in-house midwife antenatal and delivery fees. As well as external service providers and related services of obstetrician, anaesthetist and paediatrician, doulas etc.
