At the practice we bill according to the medical scheme rates for most medical aids. Many conditions we treat are Prescribed Minimum Benefit or PMB conditions, and these conditions are very well covered by the Medical Schemes. These conditions include, but are not limited to,  cataracts, diabetes and glaucoma.  Patients receive a price estimate for all planned surgeries in order to confirm the cost with their medical aid to enable them to make an informed choice. Marie-Louise at the accounting department is very proficient at providing the correct surgical codes and guidance with reimbursement guidelines with her extensive experience.
