Medical schemes

PwC has a dedicated medical schemes industry group with extensive experience in providing services to both medical schemes and administrators.

How we can help

The medical schemes industry is rapidly changing and increasing in its complexity. The industry continues to be transformed by the effects of mergers and amalgamations, solvency measures, accounting standards developments, advancing technology and enhanced risk management and compliance requirements. We have a dedicated Medical Schemes Industry group with extensive experience in providing services to both medical schemes and administrators. These services include audit, internal audit, and consulting services. Here in South Africa we have established a considerable skills base, with an in-depth knowledge of the functions and operations within the medical schemes industry.
