News Description

DAILY MAVERICK Commentators have in recent months raised many questions about how South Africa’s proposed National Health Insurance (NHI) system might function – or not function. Spotlight formulated 12 of these questions and sent them to Nicholas Crisp, the person heading up government’s NHI office. Below we reproduce Crisp’s answers in full. Q1: What happens if there are not enough OHSC accredited facilities in an area? Imagine for example a small rural town where the only health facility is poorly managed and cannot be accredited. Does the fund accredit this underperforming facility, or does it not accredit the facility and leave the people of the town with no facility?
