Please advise me…..

I needed a knee operation and my medical aid refused authorization as the plan I am on does not cover knee operations.
I then went and had the operation at Groote Schuur Hospital….a government hospital.

I have no found out that the medical aid paid Groote Schuur for the operation ?

How is that legal ?
Surely they cannot pay a government hospital for the exact same operation that they originally refused authorization for ?

Please advise
