Late joiner penalty

If a new member is over the age of 35 on joining they might be charged an additional fee depending on their proven (certificate of membership) length of previous, South African medical scheme membership. This late-joiner penalty is calculated based on the number of years the new member has not belonged to a scheme, and added to monthly premiums for the duration of membership. The penalty is only applied to the insured portion of a member's benefit.
