Profmed is the largest restricted medical scheme in South Africa uniquely designed for graduate professionals. Having its roots firmly planted since 1959 by the Professional Provident Society (PPS), it is one of the longest established medical schemes in South Africa. As the private health sector evolved over the decades, the implementation of the Medical Schemes Act in 1998 prescribed that all medical schemes are governed as separate entities, effectively unbundling Profmed from PPS. However, even as separate entities, Profmed continues to share a healthy and mutually beneficial relationship with PPS.
