Section 59 Investigation
The Council for Medical Schemes established the Section 59 Investigation in light of its regulatory mandate, under section 7(a)(b)(c)(d), 8(a) and (k) and 9(2) of the Medical Schemes Act, 131 of 1998.
The investigation will examine allegations made by medical practitioners, that they are being treated unfairly, and their claims are being withheld by medical schemes based on their ethnicity and colour of their skin.
The panel, led by Advocate Tembeka Ngcukaitobi (SC) will ultimately make recommendations to the CMS in relation to addressing the complaints, the appropriate administrative, legal and policy interventions.
