Love it or hate it: The country continues to move forward with introducing its universal healthcare scheme the National Health Insurance (NHI).
Last week, Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi introduced the draft Medical Schemes Amendment Bill and NHI Bill in Pretoria. The new legislation proposes significant changes to the way healthcare is funded and managed that could have far-reaching effects on you, your family and your pocket book.
