Interim Report for the South African Medical Association. Survey to determine the cost of specialist & general practice services in relation to the National Health Reference Price (NHRPL) 2009
The Department of Health (DOH) invited submissions for the purpose of reviewing the National Health Reference Price List (NHRPL). Based on a large sample of the actual costs of specialist and general medical practices, the report calculated dependable and conservative rand conversion factors (“RCF”) for use in generating tariffs for medical services for general practitioners and 18 specialist associations, including SAGES (Gastroenterology).
