Mediscor ChroniLine™ may require additional information from your doctor or pharmacist. Based on this information your chronic condition will be registered and the appropriate medicines will be authorised. You will also be informed if you are liable to pay any co-payment/s or if the medicines are not covered on you medical scheme option.

How do I know if my prescribed medicines are covered by my chronic benefit?
Your prescribed chronic medicines will be covered according to a set formulary. A formulary is a list of medicines used by medical schemes to manage medicine benefits, especially the chronic benefits. This could either be a Mediscor formulary (called Extended, Standard, Basic or Core) or a formulary from another organisation. To see if your medicines are included in the formulary, go to Formulary Lookup.
