I have been diagnosed with stage 2 qualifying cancer* for the first time. The cancer has been surgically removed, no further treatment is required and therefore I do not need to register on my medical scheme’s oncology treatment programme. Do I still qualify for the R30 000 lump sum cancer benefit?

No, to qualify for the benefit you must be diagnosed with stage 2 qualifying cancer for the first time AND you must be registered on your medical scheme’s oncology programme.

*Excludes skin cancer.
