News Description

MAIL AND GUARDIAN - PAGE 20 The treasury estimates that rolling out the national health insurance (NHI) system will cost an additional R33-billion over the next seven years. The health insurance’s cost were projected to increase public health spending from about 4% to 6% of gross domestic product over 15 years, but the country weak economic outlook has made the initial estimates projected in 2011 and 2017 unaffordable. The health department has reprioritised funds to establish a dedicated NHI office in the department.
