The position of the Fund is that the patient will be assisted to obtain medical assistance where they can find all the required services. If the local hospital indicates that they do not have certain services that the patient needs, they will make a medical report to us and the patient will be assisted. Those services may not necessarily be at the private hospital, some can be accessed at  referral public hospitals.
