News Description

BIZCOMMUNITY Once implemented, the majority of recommendations in the Competition Commission's Health Market Inquiry (HMI) will provide a conducive environment for attaining universal health coverage. “These recommendations introduce mechanisms for progressive and positive changes to occur in the private healthcare market, such as moving towards alternative reimbursement systems and away from the traditional fee for service system, which has led to perverse incentives," Lerato Mosiah, CEO of Health Funders Association (HFA), says. The recommendation for maximum tariffs for Prescribed Minimum Benefits (PMBs) is positive. However, Mosiah believes that in order to achieve this, funders and providers should come together to work on an industry wide single set of billing codes before the Supply Side Regulator for Healthcare is established, as suggested by the HMI. Clarifying the definitions of PMBs will also assist with this.
