Billing policy for reconstructive surgery
As a Discovery Health contracted doctor the billing policy of Doctor Ridwan Mia’s practice is to charge the Discovery Classic Direct Rate, which is significantly less than the private rate. These rates are fully covered by some medical schemes, whilst others may require co-payment by the patient. The co-payment amount will be determined by the benefits that are applicable to the patient’s medical scheme. In cases where the patient’s diagnosis is part of the Prescribed Minimum Benefit (PMB), the cost of the surgery may be covered in full, provided that the patient follows the rules as set out by their medical scheme and by the South African Law.
Professional medical reports pertaining to a patient’s medical condition, surgical and medical treatments as well as for insurance, work related and legal requirements are part of the service offered. Please enquire about these if required.
