How does
ChroniLine work?

You, your pharmacist or your doctor call us to register your chronic condition and chronic medicines.

Once registered you will receive a letter confirming the outcome of your application.

Bonus? The entire process is simplified & there is no need for forms

A ChroniLine pharmacist can do the authorisation using the Renaissance Health Fund Rules.

The ChroniLine pharmacist will contact you or your doctor should more information be needed
