Expert Assessment and Advice

To ensure that the correct chronic medication has been prescribed, our panel of pharmacological and medical advisors will assess the medication in accordance to guidelines and suggest alternatives.

We also endeavour to provide advice and information regarding chronic conditions.

Enhanced Authorisation Process

With our medical experts and technology, we have made our Chronic Authorisation Process highly efficient, so we won't keep you waiting on authorising the medication which you require.

Chronic condition medicine baskets

Transmed applies chronic medicine baskets or formularies, which are lists of medicines that consist of generic and original medicines, which will be reimbursed by the Fund subject to clinical protocols. The medicines on a formulary make up a 'preferred' list, while the medicines that may attract co-payments are referred to as 'non-preferred' medicines.
