News Description

THE SOUTH AFRICAN The National Health Insurance (NHI) plan looks set to drain taxpayers' pockets. Government is misleading the public and its much-vaunted National Health Insurance (NHI) plan is unaffordable unless taxes are increased dramatically, a study headed by Prof. Jannie Rossouw, professor of economics and head of the school of economics and business sciences at the University of the Witwatersrand, has found. The study, co-authored by Mike Holland of PriceMetrics, is to be handed in to the parliamentary portfolio committee on health by Solidarity trade union as part of its submission on the NHI. TheSouthAfrican has had access to a copy of the report.
