Fees

This practice’s fee structure is based on Discovery Classic Medical Aid tariffs, due to individual medical aids embarking on their own fee structures. Due to the complexity of medical service costing, and in line with the consumer protection act, we attempt to standardise our fees to Discovery Classic rates.
