What is a hospital network?

The Medshield Hospital Network consists of various hospital groups who have entered into a formal agreement with Medshield to provide services to Medshield members at a reduced tariff.

Why does the Scheme recommend the use of the Medshield Hospital Network?

  • Through these partnerships Medshield is in a stronger position to negotiate for competitive tariffs and access when members are in need of medical attention.
  • Using a hospital which forms part of the Medshield Hospital Network has many benefits but most importantly it allows members to maximise their benefits and enables Medshield to reduce the high costs related to hospital admissions.
  • In a nutshell, the Medshield Hospital Network is a tool that enables the Scheme to ultimately manage one of the cost drivers that contribute to high medical premium increases annually.
