BONITAS TIME-BASED CUSTOM TARIFF CODES

Healthcare Professionals (GP and Specialist) are invited to participate in the Medscheme Bonitas time-based

reimbursement model pilot starting 1 November 2013. Healthcare Professionals currently using the 0190, 0191

and 0192 range of tariff codes are invited to participate by submitting 4 new customized tariff codes (Psychiatrists,

Anesthetist and Maxillofacial surgeons are excluded). Those healthcare professionals who choose not to participate

can continue to use the current codes and will still be reimbursed as per the current status. The intended duration

of the pilot will be 6 months but this will ultimately depend on the uptake.

The 4 new customized time based tariff codes are indicated below:
