Prescribed Minimum Benefits explained

The Council for Medical Schemes (CMS) introduced Prescribed Minimum Benefits (PMBs) into the Medical Schemes Act to ensure that members of medical schemes would not run out of benefits for certain conditions and cause them to pay for medical treatment and services out of pocket. These PMBs cover a wide range of conditions, such as meningitis, various cancers, menopausal management, cardiac treatment and many others including medical emergencies.
