Out-of-the-box Benefits related to Hospital Plans

Life expectancy has gone down to a great extent when compared to earlier generations. A person can be afflicted by various kinds of illnesses, diseases, ailments even before reaching their 50s. Medicine, hospitals, pharmaceuticals are a booming sector now due to frequent cases of diseases and ailments throughout the world. This is an area of steady income for both government and private firms.

Hospital plans, medical or health insurances are some initiatives by government and private hospitals, banks, and insurance companies that tend to lower costs and high-end medical facilities are available to people who might not be able to cover the huge charges at a time. South Africa is one such nation that takes wellbeing of every person as a primary trouble to be coped with and thus maintains a National Health Plan Scheme for all.  

There are some benefits other than the staple ones that might interest you to think about for the welfare of your family.

  • Free checkups: Some major hospitals offer free health checkups as an added benefit to the hospital plans adopted by the consumers.
  • Allowances: Though very few, some hospital plans in South Africa offer some returns and allowances called ‘attendance allowance’ to the parent accompanying an ill child.

Food and travel expenses are sometimes covered by hospital plans under the daily hospital allowance scheme offered by some major hospitals.

  • Not known to many, some hospitals cover the costs that one may incur when a patient is taken back home for treatment from the hospital. These domiciliary costs of the insured patient can sum up to a big amount that is covered by the hospital plan for a limited period and amount, already mentioned in the insurance contract.
  • Some recuperating benefits are also available in various hospitals that provide a sum of money to the patient who has been hospitalised for a long time. Family member visits, loss of income, treatment delay are covered under these benefits. Some hospitals offer to cover for bariatric or weight loss surgeries that are only intended for medical purposes.
  • A new trend of earning points through showcasing of fitness and health development after a surgery, before ailment, or simply after recovering from some diseases has been rising. These points can further be redeemed after an afore-mentioned time against insurances for cutting costs or for some other benefits. The physicians provide patients with fitness bands, trackers or pedometers and record the readings over time to analyse the condition of the patient and offer points or deduct even.

Due to various uncertainties and dangers always threatening our lives, it is better to adopt some plans and reap benefits from the hospitals that can make medical attention and services affordable.
