Wisdom Teeth Removal

Hi

My husband needs his wisdom teeth removed in hospital. We are currently on discovery medical aid (Coastal Saver) with the savings account. I phoned some doctors and they advised that this procedure will completely deplete my MSA for the entire year, and I still have to pay monies in.

Is there a cheaper option than this? And where can I go to.

Had my wisdom tooth removed last Wednesday at my local government hospital and it didn' t give me any problems, best of all I didn' t cough up a cent. I even got medication
