Know your Medical Benefits

Goolam Fakier in conversation with Dr. Johan Serfontein about this topic.
Medical Scheme premiums are about to increase by CPI + 5% in January for most medical schemes. These increases are a result of an ageing, sicker population using more services, and not by medical schemes affording doctors excessive tariff increases. As a medical scheme member, being aware of your rights as far as Prescribed Minimum Benefits (PMBs) go, could save you a lot of out-of-pocket healthcare expenses in the coming year.
