Dear Sir/Madam.

I find it very strange that Discovery rates for Midwives are so ridiculous low when a member chooses to go through midwives as compared to hospital rates.

On average giving birth through a hospital would easily cost more than R60 000 and discovery medical aid pays in full. But through Midwives it costs maximum R20 000 but discovery rates only refund about 20% of the costs, which is unfair because not all people prefer hospitals for birth.

I would like to urge Discovery to really consider us as well as the are loosing nothing but saving a lot of money through midwives births. I recently lost a lot of money while I pay a lot to Discovery.
