News Description

BHEKISA FIN24 iAfrica investing.com South Africans are paying more for private healthcare than ever before. But forking over more cash for more — and often unnecessary — care, isn’t paying off for consumers, a five-year investigation by the Competition Commission shows. The Competition Commission today released the final report on its health market inquiry in Johannesburg. The 256-page document is the outcome of half a decade of research by the body, which included public hearings, written submissions and meetings with key players in the private health industry. The report is also the most detailed picture of private healthcare in the country’s history, revealing new details on everything from ownership and profit patterns to how health facilities contract doctors.
