Departments

Corporate Communications

As a knowledge based organisation, the effective dissemination of information to industry stakeholders is critical. This is done through the media, seminars and workshops, newsletters and other communication modalities to four key industry stakeholder groupings, namely; medical schemes and administrators; medical scheme members and consumers; regulatory authorities and relevant government departments; business and labour organisations.

Benefit and Risk

The overall focus of the Benefit and Risk department is on minimising risks to which schemes are exposed in providing benefits for their members. It ensures that benefits are designed, worded and coded in such a way that there is little or no opportunity for misuse or abuse.

Three panels support the work of the Benefit & Risk Department: the Clinical Advisory Panel (CAP), the Coding and Hospital Panel (CHEP) and the Criteria Committee.
