As you choose your medical scheme option to suit your healthcare requirements for 2021, here are tips to stretch your healthcare benefits in the new year.
When you need medical advice, visit your general practitioner instead of going directly to a specialist. Also aim to use network doctors, optometrists, dentists, hospitals and pharmacies. By using your scheme’s selected medical providers and purchasing listed medicine, your scheme may pay these costs in full.
