News Description

BUSINESS INSIDER Medical schemes are expected to announce their fee hikes for 2021 in the next few weeks, with the Council for Medical Schemes (CMS) urging them to freeze prices for next year – or at least to limit hikes to 3.9%, around the current inflation rate. Last year, SA's biggest medical scheme Discovery hiked its contributions by an average of 9.5%, while Bonitas increased its prices by 9.9%. Momentum's price hike was around 8.2%.
