NAPPI® Advisory Board (NAB)


MediKredit is responsible for the management and maintenance of the NAPPI® file, subject to the governing authority of the NAPPI® Advisory Board (NAB).

The NAB establishes policies regarding the allocation of NAPPI® codes.

The Board consists of industry stakeholders such as:

  • Medical schemes and administrators
  • Private hospital groups
  • The Board of Healthcare Funders (BHF)
  • The South African Medical Association (SAMA)
  • The South African Dental Association (SADA)
  • The South African Medical Device Industry Association (SAMED)
  • Pharmaceutical benefit managers (PBM)

Decisions pertaining to NAPPI® policies are made by the NAB and not by MediKredit. This ensures the protection of the interests of all stakeholders using NAPPI® codes.
