Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi has said that the NHI will bring about change in the industry which will see medical schemes a slim picture of their former selves. Do you think this is the right approach to be taken?

ANSWER

No, medical schemes offer invaluable coverage in a market that is being ravaged by high costs.
Yes, universal healthcare will benefit the country in the long run.
Just wait, the minister will soon find out that a medical industry without medical schemes is no industry at all.
