CF- filing fastracks self registration by employers
On-line self registration of employers and enhancing the process enabling the business to obtain a letter of good standing quickly are some of the innovations the Compensation Fund (CF) has come up with to provide an effective and efficient client service.
Addressing Medical Service Providers at an interactive session in Witbank, Mpumalanga on Monday evening, Vuyo Mafata, CF Commissioner said these efforts were in line with the Fund's strategic priority of providing faster, reliable and accessible COID services by 2020.
We are serious about giving support to the Fund, namely, providing quality medical care and client-centred care as part of the future of the Fund, he said. He said employer registering and Return Of Earnings were among the challenges the Fund faced.
In terms of the function restructuring we have introduced, we will see a separation of COID services, medical benefits and rehabilitation services, Mafata said.
COIDA services include:
Accident Insurance Pay outs (TTD and PDs)
Return of Earnings and Assessments
Compliance and Audits
Medical benefits are:
Medical Services (Procedure Authorisations, specialised claims processing etc.)
Medical Claims Processing and payments
Managed Care Services and
Rehabilitation services focus on:
Vocational Rehabilitation programmes
Clinical Rehabilitation programmes
Social Rehabilitation programmes
The CF will proceed to Rustenburg, where it will meet North West service providers tomorrow at 6pm.
Media is invited to attend.
