News Description

CAPE ARGUS - PAGE 9 DAILY NEWS - PAGE 5 THE STAR - PAGE 8 The public has been given its last platform t make comments on the National Health Insurance issue as hearings move to Gauteng. The Health portfolio committee will this week visit that province on the NHI, following a series of hearings in other provinces in the past few months. The committee said it would take into account the views of the public when it started crafting the NHI Bill. The bill was tabled by Health Minister Zweli Mkhize last year. However, the government has not given detailed plans on the cost of the NHI, and some opposition parties have warned it would not work because the infrastructure in public hospitals and other facilities was not working. They also said the government would not have the money required to fully implement it.
