Premature Baby and Legislation
According to a certain medical aid, which I phoned today, they said that it is legislation that if a baby is born premature and wheigh less than 2.5 kg, that no medical aid will pay for the baby's hospitlisation, doctors, etc.

Can this be true?

I have never heard of this - best would be to get a second opinion from another medical aid like Discovery too.
