What happens if I miss a monthly contribution payment?

Where accounts have been paid to either the healthcare provider or the principal member during any period for which monthly contributions have not been received, the principal member will be held liable for the full amount. Alternatively, should the principal member concerned settle his/her debt to the Fund, he/she will be entitled to benefits for services rendered during the period of suspension.

Monthly contributions are payable in advance before or on the 7th day of each calendar month. The first payment needs to be made by cheque or alternatively electronic funds transfer (EFT). Debit orders will only be processed as from the 2nd calendar month of membership. Non payment of contributions will result in suspension.
