National Health Insurance Bill 2019

The Minister has asked the public for comment and input in shaping the NHI Bill.

36913 active citizens have provided input in this, so far. Have your say below.

Medical aids as we know them will disappear under the National Health Insurance (NHI) Bill as the government will provide a package of comprehensive health services for free at private and public health facilities as part of its bid to more equitable access to quality healthcare. However, there are many concerns – see summary.

Important to note; This is a legally protected public policy-shaping process mandated in the SA Constitution. By using DearSA’s platform you ensure an accurate record is held by civil society (so government cannot dispute participation facts or figures) which forms a solid foundation for a legal case should the necessity arise. It is not a petition. Your input is immediately sent to government and must, by law, be individually acknowledged and considered. Had this been a petition, all input would be grouped as a single submission.

No I do not
Its going to cost a lot of money for just a certain group of people.
Our good doctors and specialists are going to leave the country.
No I do not
Prefer my current medical aid

FIRST fix what you know is broken such as SAA, Eskom, Denel, SABC etc, basically every single SOE and DO NOT be blinded by the reasons for failure such as corruption, stealing, nepotism, cadre deployment, BEE before you take on this mammoth task of NHI. The problems I've mentioned will not just go away due to the fact that you'll be receiving more tax money from over burdened citizens. The skilled labour force will leave this country in droves. You need to incentivise them to stay. This will chase them away. Government IS NOT sorting out the root causes.
No I do not
The idea to provide a 1st world service to a 3rd world economy and social structure and by doing this through extra tax on the small working class is not sustainable.
No I do not
It is not workable at all.
