Question posted in the Malpractice Law category relating to Gauteng
Hi. I moved from one Medical aid to another. Through a broker. When they send the acceptance papers I saw they listed me wrongly for high blood and Diabetes 2-without medication. I contacted them and they redid the application. Again the details were wrong. I told them the doctors suspected I had Diabetes but the test showed negative and sent them the blood test. Now I were clasified with Diabetes 1- without medication. Also I never had High blood presure although I mentioned I suffered from low-blood presure. I also mentioned I had anxiety. They didn't even disclose that to my medical Aid. So on 19 Oct I had a heart attac and was admitted to ICU.
The medical aid did a investigation and found me quilty of non disclosure . I reported the case to the CMS. to which they said the Broker did not disclose my correct information to the Medical Aid. I contacted the broker and they sent me a mail saying All all was on tape but didn't want me to listen to tape.
They say we did mention the bloodpresure , anxiety, and that I take medication for anxiety. But now the medical aid say I did not disclose the anxiety and medication.
The CMS agree that the Brokers was wrong and revered my Case to the FIAS ombudsman. But the amount in compensation they talk about isn't going to cover my damages and losses. What can I do? Even my Fiance who was on the medical aid with me was kicked off.
