Medical expenses without hospitalisation
Recently been to see your doctor, the dentist or another specialist? Or loaded up on prescribed medication to fight off the flu? When these expenses are unrelated to a hospital stay, your hospitalisation plan will not cover the costs. You are, however, entitled to a refund through your outpatient care plan. If your corporate-sponsored healthcare plan also includes outpatient of coverage, you can claim a refund for your medical expenses year-round.
Have a corporate-sponsored plan that includes outpatient care coverage? If so, then you can send in your medical expenses year-round for reimbursement.
Please note: medical expenses for the treatment of a serious illness (eg. cancer) are reimbursed throughout the year by your classic hospitalisation plan, even without hospital admission or outpatient care coverage. Be sure to save all hospital bills, doctors' bills and pharmacy receipts!
