Medisyn Clinical Consulting medical law consultant Shafrudeen Amod has slammed the media for false reporting on the medical aids' refusal to pay black and Indian practitioners.
The Star newspaper reported that black healthcare service providers had been dealt a blow with a ruling that indicated that the courts could not force medical aids to make payments.
Amod says there was never a court case, to begin with.
