FINANCIAL & MEDICAL AID INFORMATION

Affordable, world-class treatment

The Foundation Clinic will make every effort to assist you with the financial aspects of the clinic admission.  We understand that individuals and families impacted by substance abuse might have limited, liquid resources and we endeavour to work with you around your available funds and medical aid contributions.  We in the business of helping people!

Financial Arrangements & Medical Aids

  • There are individual rules associated with some of the medical aids regarding pre-admission, medical paperwork and authorisation/approval.
  • Please contact your medical aid and inquire about your personal benefits and PMBs, and what will be covered as we are unable to attain this information on your behalf.
    • Consultations with a medical doctor
    • Consultations with a social worker
    • Medications (certain chronic medications, psychiatric prescriptions and detox meds are not covered by medical aid or savings plans).
  • We are contracted to medical aids, but settlement of the invoice is ultimately the responsibility of the individual or medical-aid member.
  • Certain consultations are not included in the programme costs and will be drawn from the individual’s in-hospital medical benefits or savings plans, and these include medical consultations and therapy sessions.
  • Financial arrangements and payment plans must be discussed prior to admission.
  • All payment plans require that the individual responsible for the account sign an Acknowledgment of Debt and supply a copy of their ID document/card.

For Inpatient Treatment Programmes

There is a R2,950 patient management fee payable on admission for all clients entering into a full treatment programme (on medical aid)

  • If medical aid funds and PMBs are depleted clients will be informed of additional charges for therapy sessions and/or medical consultations.
  • No psychiatric, chronic or long-term medication is covered by the clinic.  If these medications are not covered by medical aid, they will need to be settled by the client.
  • Maintenance medication (e.g. methadone, suboxone, antabuse, etc.) is not normally covered by medical aid and needs to be settled by the client.
  • Self-payment gaps may vary depending on the medical aid Prescribed Minimum Benefits (PMBs), but we are able to discuss payment plans and financial arrangements. The figures outlined are just a guideline, and may vary according to your medical aid.
  • There are private rooms available at the clinic at a single supplement of R1,040/night. This needs to be arranged prior to admission.

Unfortunately the Recovery Wellness OUTPATIENT Programme is NOT covered by medical aid.

We accept Cash, EFT and Credit Card for any co-payments or cash clients.

Should you require a payment arrangement this will need to be discussed prior to admission and in order to sign an acknowledgement of debt, we will require a credit check.
