COMMITTED PARTNERSHIP WITH OUR SCHEMES
We understand the responsibility of our role in the Care economy. We are acutely aware of the positive externalities that can emanate from a benevolent, organised and intentional partner who supports medical scheme members, as they navigate their healthcare journeys, over the course of their lives.
We are privileged to reinforce the mandate of our Schemes as they seek to:
- provide clinical and financial protection to their members
- negotiate the delivery of affordable, high quality healthcare services
- drive the strengthening of the supply side
- gently nudge their members towards living healthier lives
The RFMCF (referred to as “the Fund”) was established on 01 January 1964 for the continuation of healthcare benefits to retired members as an additional condition of service for serving Regular Force Members.
Since its implementation, the Fund receives monthly contributions from its serving members in the Regular Force, which is the main source of income as pre-funding to cover the administrative and health cost of its beneficiaries.
The aim of the RFMCF is to provide continued medical, dental, and hospital treatment through the South African Military Health Services (SAMHS) to members and registered dependants.
