In-practice Dental Terms of Service
At Intercare we strive to put our patients first in all we do. The infection prevention and control requirements of healthcare facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic extend beyond established standards and have necessitated the implementation of many additional measures to keep you, your family members, and our teams safe during this time.
In addition to the normal consultation fee, a nominal fee will be added to each consultation to help fund these additional precautions. Please note that while most medical schemes cover this fee from day-to-day benefits, patients will remain liable for payment should it not be settled by the scheme.
Your dental health is directly linked to your total bodily health and neglecting dental care may cause serious illness, including heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and severe dental problems. Our dentists are prepared to safely care for you and your family and welcome you for check-ups, fillings, general dental care, oral hygiene, and treatment of gum diseases.
For your convenience, Intercare offers longer hours during the week, and our facilities are also open on weekends and public holidays. An after-hours fee (Code 0148) might be charged for consultations after 17:00 on weekdays and on weekends and public holidays. The after-hours fee (Code 0148) is not covered by most medical schemes and patients will be liable for payment.
Code 0146 is charged for medical emergencies and these consultations and procedures are covered by medical schemes from day-to-day benefits and not from the medical savings account. Please note that Code 0146 is not restricted to after-hours consultations and may be charged for medical emergencies at any time of the day.
Kindly contact the practice manager for any enquiries.
