I understand your frustration because I have also been on the receiving end (with my kids) of many emergency room visits. The best thing that you can do is to know exactly what your medical aid pays for and what not. Also, try and get some gap cover to cover those areas that the medical aid does not pay for. But once again, this is very frustrating. Remember that if there is a real emergency you need to go to the closest hospital and your medical aid has to cover this (as far as I know). Good luck . And maybe you should shop around for a better medical aid.
