This data file ensures that you are using up to date valid Nappi codes, submitting correct SEP prices and applying the correct mark up, as specified by each medical aid. Identify when a reference price list applies to a specific medical aid such as MMAP, MRP and MPL.

Medprax data is compared to all other industry price files weekly, ensuring that the drug price you submit to medical aid is valid and won’t be short-paid. This decreases rejection of claims and also saves you the time and hassle of doing accounting adjustments because you were short-paid by a few cents or rand at the end of the month.

Additional dispensing rules and remarks will notify you when a medical aid only covers 80% of the consultation fee, when a dispensing levy applies, or when the patient will only be reimbursed if seeing a designated service provider. You will also be notified when a product is excluded for payment by medical aid.

This complete drug and consumables database can be used to compare prices of drugs to ensure you stock your practice with cost effective products.

Medprax terms and conditions

Both the software development company and owner of the software must sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) with Medprax that will allow them to use the file layouts and demo data for the purpose of development and testing only. No licence will be granted to supply data to any third parties unless agreed upon by Medprax. Medprax will not supply a full data file for software development and testing purposes. Once the NDA has been signed you will receive demo data and file layouts and will then be able to develop the interface. Please note that you will be required to incorporate a Medprax security feature into your software. This will be supplied by Medprax for all desktop software.

File Layouts

File layouts will be supplied in Excel spreadsheets which indicate the different tables and how they link up. The data you use will be supplied in a text delimited format.

Contact us if you have any queries regarding the file layout.

An Interface can be written for the following core products

Active X security feature

We require this feature to keep track of all users of our data files. This is a security feature that looks for an unlock key to activate the Medprax interface. Ideally it will be coupled to the Medprax update menu option. The component supplies a lock key that has to be mailed to Medprax or phoned through for Medprax to respond with an unlock key. If this application cannot be utilised, please contact Medprax and we will discuss alternatives.

Our Business model

Once the software is complete, the end user, doctor or pharmacist using the software will have to register with Medprax individually to receive their weekly updates. Medprax does not allow for the Software developer/owner to distribute the Medprax data on our behalf. All clients/end users using Medprax data will require registration with Medprax.
