News Description

BUSINESS REPORT (THE MERCURY) - PAGE 18 PRETORIA NEWS THE STAR CAPE TIMES The South African healthcare landscape remains complicated and Lee Callakopen, Principal Officer for Bonita Medical Fund says, ‘There is no doubt that access to quality healthcare for all citizens is a priority and the intention of the Department of Health to introduce the National Health Insurance (NHI) Bill has our fullest support, however we believe more debates and engagement between all stakeholders – including civil society and business- is required to make sure the process is fair, participatory and transparent. This will ultimately result in an NHI Bill that will ensure a sustainable, workable, stable, quality healthcare solution for all South Africans.” The Bill outline s a transitional arrangement, which means the NHI will not happen overnight until then it is business as usual, in terms of private medical schemes.
