No amount of spin will make NHI a success
21 June 2018
The DA notes that the Minister of Health, Dr Aaron Motsoaledi, has today gazetted the National Health Insurance (NHI) Bill.
Sadly, it does not matter how the Minister tries to spin the NHI plan, the fact remains that it simply is not feasible.
We have already seen how NHI pilot projects across the country failed dismally.
Doctors and pharmacy assistants contracted to assist with NHI projects have allegedly not received salaries from the Department of Health’s payroll administrator. In Limpopo, a group of 30 doctors, are now reportedly unemployed after their NHI contracts were not renewed.
