What are prescribed minimum benefits? (PMBs)

Medical schemes in South Africa are required by law to cover 270 hospital-based conditions and 25 chronic conditions in full, as well as provide emergency treatment and certain out-of-hospital treatments. This means that all schemes must provide this prescribed minimum benefit (PMB) level of cover for these conditions.
