Bluechip Health Fund Fee Updates

As part of your Bluechip subscription,  we provide you with the latest Health Fund fee schedules. The various fee schedules for Health Funds are not always readily available, which means we regularly have to check the various health funds to get these updates and then create a format that may be imported into your Bluechip software.

We recommend you view the current status and the date the fees are effective from to ensure you have the latest versions.

If your Health Fund has supplied you with an updated file, and this is not identified as In progress, please email these files to customercare@medicaldirector.com to ensure they get prioritised.

To verify your fees please review the various Health Funds directly.
