Circular 66 of 2022: Extension to Quarterly Statutory Returns Submission for 31 March 2022

The Council for Medical Schemes (CMS) is currently experiencing technical issues with the Statutory Return system and SigniFlow, which impacts the Q3 Statutory Return submission.

Considering these issues, the CMS has decided to extend the deadline for the submission to 07 December 2022. Schemes are to ensure that all statutory return queries and validations are resolved by 02 December 2022, and all requirements of Circular 62 of 2022 remain applicable.

Attention is drawn to the provisions of Section 66(3) of the Medical Schemes Act (131 of 1998), in terms of which any medical scheme that fails to furnish the Registrar of Medical Schemes with the prescribed documentation shall be liable to a penalty of R1 400.00 (one thousand four hundred Rand) for every day on which the failure to comply continues.

Your co-operation will be highly appreciated.
