DISCOVERY MEDICAL AID BENEFITS FOR DRUG REHAB

Does Discovery Medical Aid Pay for Drug Rehab?

Discovery Health, as one of the common medical aids in South Africa, typically covers substance use disorder treatment, which is considered a Prescribed Minimum Benefit (PMB).

It is important for patients to check their specific health plan details and confirm the extent of coverage for rehabilitation services at MyRehab Dual Diagnosis Addiction Centres.
