Care

Members who require chronic dialysis for end-stage renal disease can register on the dialysis programme. Depending on clinical and other parameters, the Scheme will consider funding for peritoneal or haemodialysis. Certain medicines which are used in end-stage renal disease are only covered when the Scheme funding guidelines are met. Bestmed has appointed National Renal Care (NRC) as designated service provider (DSP) for renal dialysis services for its members on all the benefit options.

Register

Members are required to register for the Dialysis care programme to qualify for additional benefits. To successfully register on the programme, members need to submit a clinical summary of their condition, as set out by their treating doctor. The summary should include the history and ICD-10 codes.

Follow these easy steps to register:

  1. Download the chronic dialysis application form from here and complete all the relevant sections
  2. Email the completed form and clinical summary (including the ICD-10 codes) to mhc@bestmed.co.za or fax to +27 (0)12 472 6780
