My relative is a medical doctor. He sees medical aid patients but is often short-paid by medical aids for medicine dispensed, the amounts sometimes not even covering his cost. Also, some medical aids pay much less than others, taking advantage of the current uncertainty and disputes caused by the medical and pharmacy councils and the health dpts regarding medicine pricing in S.A. As yet, a definitive law regarding medicine pricing has not been achieved, so medical aids are exploiting the market, paying what they feel they want to.
