How to claim

Value Care Plan members belong to a network plan and may only use Prime Cure facilities or Prime Cure network healthcare providers, or both. Prime Cure pays these healthcare providers to provide you with healthcare services. You do not have to pay any accounts unless you have not complied with the Rules or use a healthcare provider outside the network in an emergency. If you receive healthcare services outside the network for an emergency, submit your claim and proof of payment to the address below:

Third-party claims

Anglo Medical Scheme Rules state that claims for costs that are recoverable from a third party (for example, the Road Accident Fund, or any other insurance fund) are not payable by the Scheme or Prime Cure. However, Anglo Medical Scheme is aware that the time taken for these claims to be finalised can vary from a couple of months to years after the accident or incident.

As a result, Prime Cure will agree to settle these accounts after requesting a letter of undertaking from you. Prime Cure will manage the case with the relevant attorneys and service providers.
