Just as a community comes together to build a bridge, cost-sharing involves you and your insurer partnering to cover medical costs. Often, this may involve you paying a small fraction of the doctor’s fee, hospital registration fee, covering a exclusion out-of-pocket or even topping up on your prescription drugs – especially if they are not generic drugs or if they exceed a certain limit in cost. Cost-sharing is a shared effort that ensures accessible and affordable healthcare in Africa.
