More about the Ruby option
The Ruby option includes a PMSA that consists of 20% of your contribution that is allocated to a savings account held in your name. This account will pay for your out-of-hospital or day-to-day medical expenses.
Once you’ve depleted your PMSA, your out-of-hospital claims will be paid from the limited block benefit. You will receive an annual PMSA statement that will reflect all your transactions and entries made on your savings account. This statement will be sent to you when IT3(b) statements and tax certificates are issued.
There is a specific Ruby, Emerald and Onyx (REO) network that is made up of GPs, specialists and pharmacies who have agreed to charge our Scheme rate and follow our relevant managed care rules for these options.
