What is a Designated Service Provider Network?
A Designated Service Provider (DSPN) is a healthcare provider or group of providers designated by the Scheme to provide services to our members for the diagnosis, treatment and care of medical conditions, including PMB conditions. Using a DSPN ensures that you receive the most appropriate treatment to facilitate better outcomes. If you use a non-DSPN you will be liable for any co-payment over and above what is charged by the DSPN.
The Scheme’s DSPNs apply to both Premium and Savvy options with the exception of the hospital network for hospitalisation, which is only applicable on the Savvy options.
