CPC/Qualicare and IPAF position on recent development regarding Fraud, Racism & Funders withholding Payments
As the leading national Family Practitioner doctor network we do not condone fraud, & will not defend any of our members in instances where fraud has been proven beyond doubt. Secondly, we do not condone deviation from the law by medical schemes &administrators, in the name of recouping monies allegedly claimed fraudulently. Lastly, we urge our members to exercise care and caution when providing medical services and claiming from medical schemes for services rendered.
