Please note:

In the Board Notice 194 of 2017 the FSCA requires that all and any regulatory CPD activities be approved by a Professional Body.  This is reflected in the Definition of a CPD Activity in the Board Notice.  The FAnews magazine is approved by both the IISA and the FPI who are Professional Bodies.

Section 32 states that CPD activities are:

  • Market trends
  • Risk updates
  • Legislative update

FAnews purpose is to provide our readers with these updates in written form and make that available through our online platform for Regulatory CPD purposes.  What the Professional Bodies deem as relevant for Professions is beyond the scope of what the FSCA requires and therefore beyond what FAnews provides.

The FSCA does not require professional body membership of anyone in the industry in the current regulations and therefore this is irrespective of whether the affected 140 000 persons are members of professional bodies or not.  Any CPD that befits the requirements of Section 32 of Board Notice 194 of 2017 must be approved by a professional body.  The FIA is not a professional body but an industry association and as such approach the IISA and FPI for approval of their events to comply with the same requirements.

QUESTION

In its current format, what will the future of medical schemes be in an industry run by the NHI?

ANSWER

I just can’t see it (NHI) happening
There is a real risk of our already fragile healthcare system being placed under even further pressure leading to a total collapse
Medical schemes will struggle to remain in existence if NHI does happen; there isn’t enough money in the system
