Payment of claims
Most healthcare providers will submit claims directly to the Scheme in which case you do not need to submit the claim. Claims will be paid directly to the healthcare professional when they bill the Discovery Health Rate. If the healthcare professional claims more than the Discovery Health Rate, the Scheme will reimburse you and you will be required to pay the full amount to the healthcare provider. Cash claims and claims payable to members are paid weekly.

What to remember
- Submit claims within four months. Older claims will be considered expired and will not be paid.
- Check the claim to make sure the following details are correct and clear:
- your name and membership number
- the name and practice number of the healthcare provider
- the date on which the service was provided
- the relevant consultation, procedure codes or Nappi codes and diagnostic (ICD-10) codes
- the total amount charged for the service
- Include a receipt if you paid for the claim.
- Send a detailed claim and not just a receipt as we need the details of what you are claiming for in order to process your claim quickly and correctly.
- If the healthcare provider sends the claim to us electronically, you don't need to send us a copy.
