I have no idea. As you say, what you did was deeply wrong, and you were very lucky indeed that they did not prosecute you. Do I understand you that the medical aid scheme your new job uses, is now administered by the same scheme you had the problem with ? Have you in fact paid them back the sum you misappropriated ? I think you have to disus this frankly with someone reasoably senior in this medical aid scheme, to see what ca be done. If you sign up without disclosing this previous problem, it would probably create still more problems, and they could indeed refuse you coverage for any expenses for non-disclosure of relevant facts. Whether they will chose to disclose your previous problem to your employer, I can't guess. They may not do so if you discuss this frankly with them, and if you have paid back what you owed.
