NHI: Qualicare calls for calm……Universal Health Coverage is the true goal

In this edition of Qualicare news we offer our overarching vision on Universal Health Coverage for RSA, as well as a summary of the NHI Bill and a booklet explaining NHI, released by the Department of Health for future reference.

Universal Health Coverage (UHC) is not automatically NHI. NHI is the funding mechanism to pay for Universal Health Coverage. The latter is catered for in the SA Constitution as part of the progressive realization of healthcare.’

Can SA learn about NHI from those who have it??

HEALTH Minister Aaron Motsoaledi has defended the government's failure to attract private doctors to work at clinics in the National Health Insurance (NHI) pilot districts, telling parliament that greed was standing in the way. Only 96 private sector doctors have signed contracts to work the NHI pilot districts, well short of the target of 600 set for this fiscal year, which ends on March 31. Doctors complained that the hourly rate offered by the state was too low, despite the government offering the top hourly rate set by the Department of Public Service and Administration for public hospital sessional work, Motsoaledi said.

Herewith a draft contract for GPs wanting to partake in NHI and contract with the State.

You will see that it is in its infancy at present but it gives you a good idea what State is thinking . No rates have yet been made apparent by State , and the GPs who will be contracted are only going to be those in rural and far outlying areas currently underserved by the GP population.

The rate per hour which seems to be in line with State policy is R 300 per hour.
