Application for a Practice Number

    Why a Practice Number

    A practice number is allocated to all registered healthcare providers providing services to private patients. It is essential in the process of reimbursement of a claim to either a medical scheme member or a service provider. This is in accordance with the requirement of the Medical Schemes Act 131 of 1998 wherein it is stated that a medical scheme may only reimburse a member or a provider of relevant healthcare services for services rendered against a valid practice code number.
