Attention all Discovery Health members

If you fetch a script from any pharmacy displaying the Discovery designated provider sticker, they HAVE to charge Discovery''s medication rate. If they charge above this and refuses to charge the Discovery rate, expecting you to pay their price, they can lose their Designated Provider status. I went to fetch a script at the Pharmacross pharmacy where my GP is and they charged me above the Discovery rate and I had to pay a levy. I complained on HelloPeter and lo and behold, they called me to come and fetch the levy refund. So do not allow pharmacies to overcharge! We pay enough for medical aid without being swindled.

Hope this helps others who were being swindled like me.
