I am registered with the Board of Healthcare Funders, which means that clients are able to claim from their medical aids provided that their benefits include cover for psychological services. This cover is likely to be limited, as most medical aid plans have annual thresholds or maximum benefits that apply.
There are also statutory prescribed minimum benefits (PMB's) that cover certain conditions like clinical depression and acute trauma in full. This covers outpatient psychotherapy of up to 15 contacts, or hospital-based management of up to
3 weeks (21 days) per year.
