Medical Aid Active, Suspended or Terminated: What does it mean?

The status of your medical aid cover is an important factor to consider when you need to access healthcare services.  If you have not been up to date with payments then it is important to speak to your medical scheme to verify whether your membership is still active. It is possible that your membership has been suspended or even terminated and you may not be aware of it. Sometimes the attempts by your medical scheme to contact you has failed and your membership is no longer active.
