NEUROCARE
Dr Jan Swanepoel - Liaison Neuropsychiatrist

Tariffs as from 1 January 2020

Practice Policies, Terms and Conditions

These tariffs are applicable to SA Resident Patients only and are set as per national HealthMan guidelines as approved by the SA Society of Psychiatrists (SASOP). Generally no referral letters are required for accessing this service.

Where specific Medical Insurance contractual arrangements are in place tariffs may vary, no levies will be applicable and claims will be submitted directly. Current contractual agreements are in place for Discovery Health, Medscheme, GEMS, Polmed and some smaller Companies.

The Private tariffs below are applicable to Patients with no Medical Insurance, or when no specific contractual arrangement is in place.

All Patients are responsible for settling the difference between the Private tariff and what their Insurance is willing to contribute in full on the day.

In the event of a Patient not using the full reserved time-slot by addressing all problems in a portion of the time, or by not attending a reserved appointment, Dr Swanepoel is hereby indemnified from rebating partial value to either Patient or Medical Aid.

Due to the nature and complexity of Liaison Neuropsychiatry tariffs are charged for global services rendered and Patients hereby agree to wave any strict face-to-face time-based principle.

Medication scripts for brain disorders by Codes of Practice require in-person review at least on a three-monthly basis, and longer term prescriptions will apply in exceptional circumstances only.
