Occasional Note – Medical Expenditure on Private Hospitals

Over the past decade, medical scheme expenditure for various services has been increasing consistently. However, medical scheme expenditure on private hospitals has been growing faster than expenditure on other services. This has erroneously and simplistically been attributed only to price increases of hospital services. The aim of this Econex study is to provide a better understanding of the factors that are driving this growth in expenditure on private hospital services.
