Members on all plans can join the Diabetes Care program, if they are registered for Chronic Benefits.

Members on Priority, Saver and Core plans must use a Premier Plus GP for the management of their diabetes, to avoid a 20% co-payment. If the GP is affiliated to the CDE then care will be managed through the CDE.

Members on Smart plans must choose a doctor who is on both the Smart and Premier Plus GP networks for management of their diabetes, to avoid a 20% co-payment. If the GP is affiliated to the CDE then care will be managed through theCDE.

Members on KeyCare plans must choose a doctor who is on both the KeyCare or KeyCare Start and Premier Plus GP networks for management of their diabetes, to avoid a 20% co-payment. KeyCare members do not have access to the CDE.

Alcohol, substance and drug detoxification and rehabilitation are covered under the Prescribed Minimum Benefits (PMBs) and includes in-hospital management only. Admission needs to be authorised.

Detoxification is covered in full at designated service providers for a maximum of 3 days per admission, and for a maximum of 21 days per year. This must be followed by an admission for rehabilitation.

The full list of designated service providers can be found by downloading the PDF from the benefit section of the website and your closest provider will be advised when you authorise your stay. Cover at these providers includes accommodation at the facility, therapy sessions, psychologist and/or psychiatrist consultations and medication for withdrawal management.

If you choose to use a provider that is not on the list, then cover is for 80% of the medical aid tariff, and you will need to pay the difference. Where there is no designated service provider within reasonable proximity to your home or work address, full payment will be considered.
