Scheme Benefits for the treatment of Coronavirus
We have recently published an article about the Scheme benefits for the treatment of the coronavirus disease.
As per the article, the normal in- and out-of-hospital benefits, protocols and authorisation requirements would apply, according to the Scheme Rules, just as they would for the treatment of an influenza virus infection (flu).
You can find the article on our dedicated coronavirus page on www.angloms.co.za.
For information about the coronavirus itself, please stay up to date with information from reputable sources, such as the National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD): http://www.nicd.ac.za/diseases-a-z-index/covid-19/ or the World Health Organization (WHO): https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019.
If you have symptoms of coronavirus (cough, fever and difficulty in breathing), please call your General Practitioner and/or the NICD 24-hour hotline number 0800 029 999.
