Can a medical scheme terminate my membership?
Yes, if you belong to a closed scheme and you are retrenched, or made redundant, or you resign from the company. An open scheme can only terminate someone's membership if they do not pay their contributions, or if there have been proven fraudulent transactions or claims.
