About Medical Schemes

 

Most medical aids will cover the cost of the breast prosthesis every two years and mastectomy bra up to every three months. This depends on the chosen medical aid and option. Lymphedema garments are claimable.
   

Some items require a prescription from your doctor, but before you make an appointment, contact us first.
   

If a medical aid does not routinely cover a prosthesis, it is sometimes useful to petition coverage. We will gladly assist you.
   

On average, prostheses could be replaced every 2 years. Some medical aids are willing to assist more frequently whilst others are prepared to assist with funding only after 5 years. Post-mastectomy bras are usually covered every three months up to a year.
   

Mastectomy bathing suits are generally not covered.

Please contact us if you need certainty about what your scheme is willing to assist you with.
