Financials & Medical Aids
The Stepmed practices work with all medical aids. We will send your session claim to your medical aid on your behalf according to your medical aid’s tariffs for the specific services rendered. It is your responsibility to check whether you have benefits/funds available for the relevant services or assistive devices.
PMB is an abbreviation for Prescribed Minimum Benefits. PMB is a set of minimum benefits that, by law, must be provided to all medical scheme members (even when their basic benefits have been depleted). The cover it gives includes the diagnosis, treatment and cost of ongoing care for a list of conditions. A list of these conditions is available on the internet.
The application process for PMB is mainly done by the involved therapists. However, you may need to complete some forms and may need to follow up with the medical aid on the progress of the application.
