Medical aid schemes in South Africa may impose certain waiting periods on new members and/or their dependants when joining a medical scheme.
Every time that a medical aid claim is rejected or not paid in full it just has to be the scheme’s fault.
Why is it then that we constantly moan about doctors’ fees and what they charge?
Members of medical schemes generally fall into one of two groups – those that have claimed and those that are going to claim in the future.
In 2013 Genesis had the lowest annual contribution increase of all open medical schemes. Our 2014 increase is also the lowest-reported to date.
The benefits on offer by each medical aid are set out in the scheme’s rules.
Wondering what other medical schemes increases for 2013 look like?
