What are Medihelp’s benefits for hypertension?

Hypertension, as a CDL condition, qualifies for PMB, subject to pre-registration and treatment protocols. This means the treatment of hypertension will be paid in full and at cost, according to Medihelp’s PMB protocols and the Medihelp Reference Price on medicine items. 

Please advise your clients who suffer from hypertension to register the condition for PMB. If their condition qualifies, Medihelp will automatically approve a basket of care, including consultations and certain tests relating to hypertension, for PMB.
