News Description

BUSINESSTECH With the announcement by the Council for Medical Schemes (CMS) that no Low-Cost Benefit Options (LCBO) will be allowed for low-income consumers and no health insurance products will be allowed beyond March 2021, South Africans are another step closer to a nationalised healthcare sector. This is the view of think tank the Free Market Foundation (FMF), which says that the proposals are ‘shambolic’ and do not reflect a well-considered, balanced view on how to increase access to quality healthcare for low-income consumers.
