2. Beneficiary access to Other Healthcare Providers via A&E
Upon discharge the A&E may refer beneficiaries to:
A hospital for the provision of inpatient healthcare
When a beneficiary is examined by an A&E and it is determined that his/her health status requires admission to a hospital for the provision of inpatient healthcare services, the beneficiary is referred to a hospital of his/her choice that is contracted with the HIO accompanied by a relevant medical report.
The transfer of the beneficiary to a hospital other than the one housing the A&E will be possible only if the health status of the beneficiary allows it and upon his/her own or his/her relatives’ responsibility.
