News Description

BUSINESS INSIDER • The Competition Commission has recommended some big changes to the way medical aid schemes operate after a years-long market inquiry. • Medical schemes should be forced to offer exactly the same coverage, it says, so they can be more easily compared, with optional ad-ons. • It also wants to see geographically-based medical aids – and confirmation from members every year that they want to pay broker fees. On Monday the Competition Commission released the findings of a years-long inquiry into the healthcare sector and the factors that keep the cost of care, including medical aid contributions, high and rising.
