CMScript 2 of 2022: Focus on DSPs & Emergencies

Designated Service Providers (DSPs) are healthcare providers that have agreements with medical schemes to diagnose, treat and care for their members for PMB conditions.

DSPs are also called network providers in some cases. When a member uses a DSP for a PMB condition, the account must be covered in full by the scheme. 

An emergency medical condition is the sudden and, at the time, unexpected onset of a health condition that requires immediate medical treatment and/or an operation. If the treatment is not available, the emergency could result in weakened bodily functions, serious and lasting damage to organs, limbs or other body parts, or even death.
