Scriptpharm is a National Pharmacy Network  comprising over 1,800 pharmacies operating throughout South Africa.

The Scriptpharm network is contracted to numerous Medical Schemes, as either a
Designated Service Provider (DSP) or a Preferred Provider (PP).

This means that members of the contracted Medical Schemes can in some instances ONLY use a ScriptPharm pharmacy for their supply of medicines, and in other instances where ScriptPharm is a Preferred Provider, members are encouraged to use the pharmacy network as the providers have agreed to the Scheme’s specific reimbursement and professional/dispensing fee.  Members who use non-contracted providers may have to make a co-payment from their own pockets should they voluntarily choose to use a non-contracted pharmacy.  Non-contracted pharmacies sometimes charge more than the Scheme’s agreed fee and this then impacts on the member.

Should you as a member need guidance on selecting a pharmacy provider in your area, and who is contracted to your scheme, please call our Call Centre and a consultant will assist you in making a decision that is suitable to you and your needs.
