Designated Service Providers
A DSP is a healthcare provider or group of providers who have been selected by GEMS to provide members with the diagnosis, treatment and care in respect of medical conditions, including PMB conditions. GEMS has selected the following DSPs for PMB care:
- State hospitals
The State is GEMS's DSP for the treatment of in-hospital PMBs. Click here to find the provincial hospitals.
- Chronic medicine DSPs
Beneficiaries are given an option to choose the Courier Pharmacy or any Network Pharmacy that is within 10km of their workplace or home. They are also required to remain with the pharmacy they have chosen for a period of six months. This is in line with the six month script cycle.
