Authorisation for surgery
After seeing Doctor in the surgery you will be handed a form with all the relevant coding on. This form will have the correct diagnosis code (ICD 10 code) as well as the procedure code. These codes will be able to make your journey to a procedure as smooth as possible.
Pre-admission department at Medi-Clinic Panorama
The patient can hand in the form at the pre-admission department on the ground floor of the hospital. A member of the hospital will help you. The pre-admissions department will email your medical aid and they will reply to you via SMS or email. It is still the patient’s responsibility to check that you have an authorisation number for your procedure before the procedure.
