The DBC back and neck treatment programme administered at The Back Clinic is covered by various medical aids from risk. This means that treatment typically does not affect savings and various hospital plans qualify for treatment. The 3 conditions under which medical aid covers the cost of treatment are authorisation, attendance at treatment sessions and completion of treatment.
If your medical aid does not cover the treatment from risk benefits, or if you do not have medical aid, you may choose to make use of savings or to pay cash. Please contact us on 0861101353 to find out about the affordable cash rates povided by the Lam, Mconcoza and Partners.

3 CONDITIONS FOR MEDICAL AID PAYMENT
We assist you to obtain authorisation for treatment where authorisation is required. While this is a fairly straightforward process, it is important to remember that authorisation by your medical aid is required in order for them to cover the cost. So we advise patients to always double check their documentation to ensure that all information is accurate and has been obtained in time.
ATTENDANCE & PARTICIPATION
Treatment typically lasts from 3 weeks to 6 weeks. We ask patients to commit to treatment 2 times a week for the best treatment outcomes. Put simply, decide if you are able to commit 3 to 6 weeks of consecutive appointments until treatment is complete. Consistent attendance is therefore required once you have enrolled onto the programme alongside home exercises and stretches.
Payment for treatment is only settled when your recommended treatment has been completed. This means that while you are authorised for the programme, your account is only settled at the end of your entire treatment programme. We advise patients, to therefore consider if they are able to commit to treatment to its completion to avoid unpaid accounts.
