Chronic medication refers to medication prescribed by a healthcare provider for an uninterrupted, prolonged period of time. It is used for a medical condition that appears on the Fund’s list of approved chronic conditions. It should, however, be noted that not all conditions necessitating treatment for more than three months can be termed chronic conditions – some acute conditions may also last a few months. Chronic conditions usually require life-sustaining medication that is prescribed or dispensed to members registered on the chronic medication programme.
The Fund has contracted with Momentum Health Solutions (Pty) Ltd to provide a Medicine Risk Management (MRM) programme for the benefit of members who have been diagnosed with certain chronic conditions.
