News Description

BUSINESSTECH The Council for Medical Schemes (CMS) has published a new circular in which it prohibits South African medical aids from offering Low-Cost Benefit Options (LCBO) to low-income market segments. This decision is to align such products ‘with the broader health policy discussion that seeks to ensure adequate access to care, irrespective of the economic status of the population’, the regulator said.
