Discovery Health rejects contentious NHI bill – Discovery had broadly supported the proposed reforms. But in submissions to Parliament last year, it rejected the single-funder model as unworkable. For more on this we’re joined by Ryan Noach of Discovery Health.
The country’s public health system is limping due to a shortage of staff, equipment, and a brain drain, which has seen many healthcare practitioners leaving the country. It’s made it difficult for the system to cope with demand, particularly during peaks, such as the flu season or during the COVID-19 outbreak. Is National Health Insurance the solution? We discuss this further with Director of Mancosa’s School of Healthcare, Paresh Soni.
The South African Medical Association remains concerned by the changes which will be brought about by the introduction of the National Health Insurance Bill if it is approved. Russell Rensburg from the Rural Health Advocacy group unpacks the implications.
As government rolls ahead with the NHI, are they ignoring its many red flags? Discovery Health Chief Executive Officer Ryan Noach.
The National Health Insurance (NHI) Bill is passed and now moves on to the National Council of Provinces, before reaching the desk of the President for consideration. This takes the country a step closer towards universal healthcare coverage which is intended to provide quality healthcare to all citizens regardless of the size of their pockets, employed and unemployed. Tonight we look at what it means for you and joining Full View is Deputy Health Minister Dr Sibongiseni Dhlomo.
The National Health Insurance Bill was approved by the National Assembly. It’s a health financing system created to provide access to quality health care for South Africans regardless of their socioeconomic status. eNCA speaks to Dr Katlego Mothudi, managing director of the board of Healthcare Funders.
Health Minister Dr Joe Phaahla has defended the National Health Insurance Bill, saying it’s what the country needs to ensure that all have access to quality healthcare. The National Assembly recently passed the Bill, which is now referred to the NCOP for concurrence. Many in the health sector and other stakeholders have fiercely criticised the Bill. But Dr Phaahla says critics are motivated by vested and narrow interests.
The passing of the National Health Insurance Bill has elicited mixed reactions. The NHI will cover all South Africans, employed or unemployed regardless of income. Some have described it as the most revolutionary bill ever passed by the Parliament while others say it lacks clarity. We talk more about this with a Health and Social Security Specialist, Professor Alex van der Heever.
