Medical schemes

Hello Jan. I am a medical scheme specialist and cannot give you any advice on clinical questions on health conditions.

From a medical scheme point of view I suggest that you contact the medical scheme broker, or your father's medical scheme to make sure that he is on the most appropriate option that will provide sufficient cover for him. This is now the time of year that you can change your medical scheme options
