News Description

FIN24 As the number of confirmed coronavirus cases rises every day in South Africa, and the likelihood of more internal transmissions escalates, many people are starting to wonder whether they’ll get adequate medical attention should they be diagnosed, what their medical schemes would cover them for, and what will happen to those without health insurance as state hospitals are already in a state of dysfunction. Fin24 asked medical schemes and private hospital groups what they are doing to cooperate with government in terms of covering testing and treatment and providing quarantine facilities, if the load of people requiring hospitalisation gets to a point where beds in the military hospitals aren’t enough to accommodate all those who need admission.
