MediRates has found the ultimate cure to your year-end accounting blues. We have developed a platform where all published tariff releases and updates are consolidated and communicated directly to you from a single site.
Accurate Tariffs: The tariffs are in Rand value, putting an end to the
rounding & approximation issues. MediRates works directly with the medical schemes thereby ensuring that the tariffs made available to you are accurate and available on time.
Easy to use single point of access: We make all of this information available to your practice in an easy to set up and use, centralised web-based format. From this one site you have access to every medical aid tariff and can:
Customised to your Practice: The service is not a ‘one size fits all’ offering. The system allows you to set up the details of your practice with each individual scheme, which means that you only see the tariffs relevant to your practice. No more hassle trying to find the correct price for a specific procedure code. We have incorporated a variety of search filters on our lookup system to speed up the process of finding the correct tariff.
What if I use my own tariffs or am cash based? Our platform also enables you to cater for your private & cash clients. You can capture your private rates against the procedure codes on the spreadsheet. Using the lookup system, MediRates will automatically calculate the co-payment your patient is liable for based on their chosen medical aid, which means that you can inform your patients what their scheme should repay and what their co-payment will be. This allows your patient to make a quicker, more informed decision.
Proactive update notifications: By hosting all of the notifications & updates on one site, you only need to check a single site to see if there are updates to any tariff. Once registered, MediRates will proactively notify you if any of your applicable tariffs changes by mail.
For most practices you will only require one user account. MediRates doesn’t charge extra when multiple practitioners belong to the same practice due to the fact that the billing profile for the practitioners is identical. MediRates creates a customised tariff profile for each registered account which is based on the discipline type and the contracts for each of the medical schemes that your practice has signed. This is part of our service to the practice to reduce the complexity to relevant tariffs only and reduce the costs.
However, if you have multiple practitioners who are spread across multiple discipline types and/or have signed different contracts with the medical schemes, then multiple accounts will be required and will be charged accordingly.
The standard subscription for specialist and all other disciplines is priced at R997 once-off for the year.
There is also a reduced price for the auxiliary disciplines of R497 once-off for the year. This price is also available to GP’s who only require consultation tariffs and none of the other procedure code tariffs. If you select this subscription option the system will limit your access accordingly.
The qualifying auxiliary disciplines are as follows: Art therapist, Biokineticist, Chinese medicine, Chiropractor, Dental therapist, Dietician, Genetic counsellor, Hearing Aid Accoustician, Homeopath,Naturopathy, Nursing agencies, Occupational therapist, Orthoptist, Orthotists & Prosthetist, Osteopathy, Physiotherapist, Phytotherapy, Psychologist, Psychometry, Registered counsellor, Registered nurse, Social worker, Speech & audiologist, GPs (Consultations only)
