News Description

CITY PRESS - PAGE 11 Unexpected side-effect of confinement has been a saving in medical costs, writes Maya Fisher-French Despite fears that the outbreak of the Covid-19 coronavirus would result in high claims from medical scheme members, driving up the cost of healthcare, the opposite has proven to be true.
