News Description

FIN24 South Africa’s largest open medical scheme says its prescribed minimum benefits policy remains centered around funding treatments where there is strong clinical evidence showing their effectiveness, even if they are more expensive than alternatives. This comes after the Council for Medical Schemes (CMS) ruled recently that Discovery Health Medical Scheme (DHMS) must fund alternative surgical treatment for glaucoma which Discovery argued did not meet “PMB level of care” treatment prerequisites.
