National Health Insurance (NHI)

 

Die neuse word al rooier en langer na die kommunistiese oorheerste regering se pad (bolshevisme) wat wys waarvan hul gemaak is  – vir hulle is daar baie afdraaipaaie na korrupsie op korrupsie, guptas en morde.   Onder watter doeltreffendheid en wie se intigriteit word korrupsie en misdaad uitgevoer of bekamp ?     Zweli Mkhize, ANC minister of Health have said the National Health Insurance programme “will be run with the same efficiency and integrity” as the Road Accident Fund and the National Student Financial Aid Scheme, writes MedicalBrief.

Niemand hoef geleerd te wees of ‘n graad te he vir die magdom korrupsies en misdaad wat die anc bestuur – wat bestaan vandag nog onder diktatorskap van die ANC nadat hulle deur die vorige elite en regime (FW, Broederbond en klassieke liberales) ingestuur is in 1994 om die land in chaos te doop.   Daar is geen diens wat meer gelewer kan word nie – daar waar nog geld geneem kan word moet weggeneem word.

Burgers van Suid-Afrika sit net en wag vir die finale “doodskoot” as alles ineenstort (dit wat nog nie omgeval het nie).

Pad Ongelukke fonds is reeds bankrot, baie goeie voorbeeld, nes Eskom ook besig is om weg te gly in die donker gat in waar daar borrelende lawa besig is om ons daagliks te oorstroom.   
Dit is ook ‘n ope vraag met hierdie fonds dat alle immirante en onwettiges by hospitale en mediese klinieke sal instap en ‘n gratis diens verwag.   Daar is miljoene van hulle in Suid-Afrika.

LET WEL – Fokus op beveiliging!  Dis allerbelangrik om aan te sluit by Betroubare volksgroepe.

We live in a real world where the allocation of resources determines every nation’s trajectory. So you can’t just throw all the money you possess at a single problem. And any way one looks at it, the RAF has been an unmitigated disaster for taxpayers with billions continuously siphoned off by underserving actors.   

Pam Saxby wrote on the Legalbrief Policywatch site that since existing Public Finance Management Act section 3(A) entities have “set a precedent of good governance and accountability”, there is apparently every reason to believe that the funding mechanism proposed in the 2019 National Health Insurance Bill will follow suit, according to a media statement from the Health Department. Prompted by concerns about “media reports in which various stakeholders have made public comments … (on) the … Bill”, among other things the statement notes the “high index of confidence” in existing section 3A entities, which over the years have apparently ‘set a precedent of good governance and accountability’.

In a recent interview conducted by Radio 702’s Clement Manyathela, National Assembly Health Committee chair Sibongiseni Dhlmo said this year’s public hearings programme will begin in Free State province towards the end of the month, followed by North West province, the Western Cape and Gauteng. He hopes to have concluded the programme by mid-February.

Mkhize said that he understands the apprehension around the NHI, but has reassured stakeholders that the system will be run with the same efficiency and integrity as other public entities, reports Business Tech. Mkhize said: “The powers, privileges and consequence management set out in typical section 3A entities are no different to what is being proposed in the NHI Bill. There is a high index of confidence in section 3A entities as they have set a precedent of good governance and accountability.”

Mkhize added that his department has already implemented, and is seeing results from a number of new initiatives in preparation of the new bill. These include: The Public Health Infrastructure Refurbishment Programme and The Health Sector Anti-Corruption Forum, which has detected and prosecuted in instances of fraud and corruption within the private and public sectors; the department’s human resource capital has been boosted by various strategies such as the increase in numbers of doctors trained, (leading to the largest number of interns being placed in 2020 to date); and the presidential stimulus package has allowed for the funding of more posts and the protection and retention of departmental savings to be redirected towards human resources for health.

“Medical Practitioners, along with all stakeholders, will continue to be engaged through consultation processes held by parliament through which any concerns and suggestions about the NHI Bill can be raised,” he said.

Mkhize said he does not understand fear mongering when it comes to the NHI system because it will be managed in the same way as institutions such as the Road Accident Fund (RAF) and the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (Nsfas).

City Press reports that Mkhize went on the defensive after its sister publication Rapport reported that opinion polls indicated that many doctors were threatening to leave the country if the NHI was implemented in its current form.

The report says both publications referred to an opinion poll conducted by mutual financial services company PPS, in which 72% of its professionals said they would emigrate, as well as to a poll conducted by the SA Medical Association, which found that 38% of doctors said they would leave.

Mkhize defended the NHI, saying it would be managed like other Schedule 3A entities – defined as “extensions of a public entity with the mandate to fulfil a specific economic or social responsibility of government”. South Africa had more than 150 Schedule 3A national public entities, and hundreds more in the provincial sphere, which were managed effectively and with integrity, said Mkhize.

ANC alliance partners Cosatu and the SACP have announced that they back the NHI saying it is a necessity to address the healthcare crisis in the country and allow people to have access to quality health care, according to a Sunday Tribune report. SACP general secretary Blade Nzimande said the party wanted the NHI to be implemented this year. “The alliance must unite to advance and defend the interests of our people and defeat all those forces opposed to the NHI.

“We are against the use of illness in society as a basis for profit-making. We believe that quality health care must be accessible to all in our society, irrespective of one’s social standing and location,” said Nzimande.

Cosatu has also called for the government to intensify efforts to roll out NHI. It said NHI would ensure that poor people had access to quality health care. But the official opposition said the NHI would not be successful in light of the pilot projects that had not succeeded. They said most of the pilot sites had collapsed.
