DRM Programme

Disease Risk Management (DRM) Programme

The importance of you managing your chronic condition effectively is undeniably vital for your long-term wellbeing, as this can avoid complications of your condition that could have been prevented.  As your medical Fund, we want to offer our support by introducing the Disease Risk Management (DRM) Programme.

  • This programme provides a comprehensive treatment plan that is unique to the condition you have been diagnosed with, along with regular health information to help you better understand your condition. 
  • When you register your condition, you as a patient will become more informed and involved in the active management of your chronic condition. There are defined consultations and tests that must be done per year e.g. if you have Diabetes you will need to get pathology tests done that monitor your Diabetes.
  • The Programme helps you to optimally manage your chronic condition. Optimal management of chronic conditions improves overall health, and this means fewer hospital admissions and complications.
  • If you have been diagnosed with one or more of the below-mentioned chronic conditions, you must register for the DRM Programme by completing the Chronic Application Form that is available on the website and sending it to for processing.
  • You will in return receive a comprehensive chronic treatment plan that is unique to your chronic conditions.  If you are diagnosed with any additional chronic conditions in the future, you must complete the Chronic Application Form and submit it to the Fund to receive your adjusted chronic treatment plan.
