MEDICAL BRIEF The Council for Medical Schemes (CMS) said urgent steps must be taken to reduce high levels of medically unnecessary caesarean births in the medical schemes population, following an analysis based on 105 485 birth admissions from all schemes that submitted data for the 2018 Healthcare Utilisation Annual Statutory Returns. The council says in a research brief that the overall caesarean section (CS) rate for the medical schemes industry was 77.4%, which is among the highest in the world.
