Cape Town - As a medical scheme member, you rely on your scheme to play by the rules. Here are some things which they cannot do.
The world of medical schemes in South Africa is a very different one now to what it was 25 years ago. There are strict rules and regulations governing the industry, and these are there to protect both the members and the financial sustainability of the scheme.
As members we are fortunate, as in many countries such as the US, before the advent of Obamacare, it was not illegal for schemes to cancel the membership of their most expensive clients. It is not legal to do that here.
