FEE STRUCTURE AND FINANCIAL ARRANGEMENTS
Dear valued patient,
In November 2003 the competitions commissioner declared all fixed price structures in the medical industry as illegal.
The Council for Medical Schemes (CMS) and the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) were then approached by the Board of Healthcare Funders (BHF) and The South African Dental Association (SADA) to establish a guideline for fees.
These fees were established and the CMS’s reference fees are now known as the National Reference Price List for Medical Aids (NRPL) and the HPCSA’s reference fees as HPCSA Fees for Dental Practitioners (HPCSA Fees)
All medical aids can now pay whichever portion of a claim they prefer and dentists can ask any fee that they think is fair if he can justify it against the HPCSA Fees.
We use the HPCSA fees as guideline.
Please enquire with your medical aid as to how they pay dental fees for ease of your financial planning.
We willingly give quotes before commencement of any dental work !
