Please note that due to ongoing problems with LA Health Medical Aid paying claims to the patient instead of the doctor (with patients then refusing to pay over monies to the doctor), this practice will no longer accept LA Health as a payment method. Patients have two options:
- Pay cash upfront and then claim back from LA Health themselves.
- Attend another practitioner.
In hospital consults from other doctors will still be attended to, as will bonafide emergencies.
We regret the inconvenience this may cause patients, but the persistent blackmail tactics used by LA Health to force practices to charge scheme rates are unacceptable.
