Who are ICON
The Independent Clinical Oncology Network (ICON) is a network of specialists in oncology who are committed to widening access to quality cancer care across South Africa.
More than 80% of the country’s oncologists and radiation oncologists are part of the ICON movement and most major medical schemes have accepted the model. ICON also has a national footprint with high-tech chemotherapy and radiation therapy facilities across South Africa.
ICON provides a risk management benefit package for oncology to assist participating medical schemes in the management of the financial burden and impact of cancer in the medical scheme population. In essence, ICON, a registered managed care organization, through contracted Equra Health radiation therapy facilities, acts as the preferred provider and designated service provider (DSP) for the medical scheme, providing peace-of-mind in terms of Regulation 8 of the Regulations to the Medical Schemes Act.
