MEDICAL AID RATES AND PRIVATE PRACTICE COSTS

A topic that is really relevant in the Health care industry is that of medical aid rates and costs of private practice. The article I have written in conjunction with my father, demonstrates the unethical rate at which our medical aids reimburse doctors and specialists, and gives an idea into what it costs to run a private practice, and why private rates are fair, legal and ethical. Much of the ground work has been done by my father, Prof Chris Joseph who is a major driving force behind the fees committees for Doctors. Colleagues, please feel free to print and laminate for consultation rooms, and members of the public, welcome to the mechanics of running a private practice and how #MedicalAids value our service and expertise…#EyeOpener
