News Description

THE STAR DAILY NEWS CAPE ARGUS Never before have South Africans been so engaged and mobilised on a matter as they are today whenever there are discussions around National Health Insurance. Sadly, the socio economic split is clear, making the NHI a divisive issue, just like racism. This class divide is a feature of the recently published Health Market Inquiry (2019) report, which, among other things, says, (i) there is "poor stewardship of the private sector"... "as a consequence, the private sector is neither efficient nor competitive";( ii) there are industry monopolies of three hospital groups, i.e. Netcare, Mediclinic and Life; and ( iii) health professionals are incentivised towards the private sector even though they are all trained by the public sector.
