2022 Flu Vaccination Benefit

The vaccines and administration thereof are already available at certain Bestmed network pharmacies or Bestmed medical centre without a co-payment. Bestmed will reimburse service providers for the cost of the vaccine, together with the contracted dispensing fee and administration fee (code 981062001). There should be no co-payment payable by members as the above reimbursement should fall within available benefits.

COVID-19 booster vaccines are funded as a PMB

There is a common misconception that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is behind us, and that it doesn’t pose the threat that it did in the past. This is, in fact, untrue. The virus is very much still in our midst, and it continues to mutate into different variants.

Enhanced palliative care benefits

Palliative care is multidisciplinary medical care that supports those with life-threatening diseases, most commonly AIDS and cancers. This specialised care aims to optimise a patient’s quality of life, as well as support their family members, at every stage of illness. Care begins when a life-threatening disease is diagnosed and continues regardless of whether treatment, such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy or any other treatment directed at the disease, is received or not.
