Q.

Medical Aid Question

Hi Doc
Could you please advise.
My daughter has braces and the instalements are charged to medical aid every month. Next month the dr. goes on holiday and therefore she does not have an appointment. Is it right that he still charges the R600 instalment?
Last year December with my son he also charged.
Right now my benefits are exhausted therefore have to pay for this months instalment but should I be paying for dec. if she''s not even seeing him? Would appreciate your point of view on this. Thanks

I'm not familiar with the billings methods of specialist Orthodontists. It is best you ask another orthodontist or discuss directly with your practitioner.
