With regards to a scheme’s net healthcare result, and with particular reference to Resolution Health Medical Scheme and Spectramed Medical Scheme, the findings do not take into account various factors such as:

  • Resolution Health being the only scheme in the country that had healthcare surpluses for the past five years (including 2017)
  • Spectramed’s turnaround strategy that was implemented during 2015and thus not taken into account in the 2015 / 2016 CMS report

 Again, this narrow view provides a dangerously skewed view and one should be careful when regarding this as a true reflection of the current scheme scenario.
