MHC’s philosophy is to provide quality, comprehensive healthcare while maintaining affordable contributions. In order to strike the necessary balance to achieve our philosophy, it is necessary to introduce DSPs. In this way, MHC can contain spiralling healthcare costs but nevertheless ensure that members receive the most appropriate treatment.

Members may choose not to use the DSP but will be liable for any co-payment over and above what is charged by the DSP.
