News Description

MEDICAL BRIEF Up to 80% of South Africa’s radiologists are considering emigrating, according to a new Radiology Society of SA survey, cited in the Financial Mail. The National Health Insurance (NHI) numbers don’t stack up, writes Katharine Child in a Financial Mail cover story. Research by Fitch estimates that government spending on health care will more than double to R450bn by 2028, two years after the NHI is meant to be up and running. Where will this money come from? The report says Mkhize’s answer is: The taxpayer, who will be asked to not only give up their private medical aid, but pay more in personal income tax and in VAT.
