Dear General practitioner
 

MMI Health Schemes – 2018 scheme rates

 
MMI Health wishes to thank you for your substantial contribution and continuous efficient provision of world class healthcare services to our members. This serves as formal communication of the annual inflationary adjustment in general reimbursement rates for 2018.
 
The schemes under our administration will be increasing their previous 2017 scheme tariff rate for 2018 by the percentages indicated in the table below. The increase in scheme rate will apply to all existing tariff codes, applicable to your discipline. Please note if you have a specific agreed rate confirmed in writing, this will supersede the normal scheme rate.
 
Medicine and consumable items (nappi items) will be funded at a 30% markup with a maximum of R35.10 per item based on SEP (medicine items) and cost price (consumables). This is applicable to scheduled or non-scheduled items.
 
The 2018 Tariff Schedules and Benefit Guides are available on our websites for your reference (see links below for your reference). Most software vendors have already been informed of the increases.
