PPN, your first choice in eye care
Bankmed has partnered with PPN to provide our members with cost-effective rates with no compromise to their professional standards or quality of products. By visiting a PPN provider you will receive excellent service as well as benefit due to the reduced tariff on materials. Tariffs are up to 67% lower compared to the NHRPL tariffs charged by non-contracted providers for certain lens prescriptions. By being a member of Bankmed you automatically qualify for these cost savings rates. Ensure that you inform the PPN provider of your medical aid information to qualify for these rates.
Non-contracted providers may charge you the rates higher than the NHRPL rate which means that you will receive less material for your optical benefit. If you want to avoid having to make a co-payment on clear lenses covered by your benefit, make sure the optometrist you visit belongs to the PPN network.
Preferred Provider Negotiators (PPN) is the largest optical network in South Africa with more than 80% of all optometrists belonging to their network providing you, the member, with ease of access. To locate a PPN optometrist in your area, please contact the PPN contact centre on 0860 103 529 or visit www.ppn.co.za.
