News Description

GO LEGAL The Health Market Inquiry (“HMI”) today released its final findings and recommendations pursuant to its almost six year long investigation into the healthcare industry. In this regard, the HMI concluded that the South African private healthcare market is characterised by the high and rising cost of healthcare and medical scheme cover, and excessive over utilisation (with stakeholders unable to demonstrate associated improvements in health outcomes). In addition, the HMI noted that there has been inadequate stewardship of the private healthcare sector, including the Department of Health’s failure to make use of existing legislated powers to manage, review and regulate the sector.
