Today’s article on MoneyWeb sheds some light in a potential dark corner in Medical schemes.
In essence, Medical Schemes are required by law to cover a list of 26 Chronic illness, medical emergencies, plus an additional 270 conditions, however it seems near impossible to get this 270-long list from medical schemes, and thus difficult if not impossible to confirm that you are not paying for services that should be provided free of charge..
This is very interesting and makes one wonder about fair treatment, or perhaps it is just a lack of understanding (and communication?), either way it will benefit members if addressed.
Even more relevant given our upcoming debate!
