GEMS is financially Sound
Dear Healthcare Providers
An article published in Business Day, Monday, 22 August 2016, which questions the financial sustainability of GEMS, is totally misleading and has caused unnecessary concern for the members of the Scheme, as well as for healthcare service providers and other stakeholders.
GEMS is financially sound The financial position of South Africa’s fastest growing medical scheme, GEMS is sound. We would like our Scheme members and healthcare service providers to know that GEMS has and will always be well placed to honour its financial commitments to Scheme members and healthcare providers.
