Will my medical aid pay for my sessions?

By 3 Jul, 2016

Depending on your medical aid plan, it is possible that your medical aid provider will cover all or some of the costs of your consultation with a psychologist.  Please contact your medical aid to find out if psychotherapy is covered by your plan, and what limitations might exist (in terms of diagnosis, funds or number of sessions available).  I am prepared to assist, for example, in making an application for Prescribed Minimum Benefit (PMB), at your request. Any and all unpaid medical aid claims will need to be covered by the client. The Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) recently published this set of information about this matter: http://www.hpcsa-blogs.co.za/patients-to-get-scheme-permission/
