The Treatment Action Campaign says it will oppose the proposed National Health Insurance system if South Africans have to pay for its implementation.

The Aids group’s chairperson Nonkosi Khumalo says the TAC will assemble its members to comment on the NHI once a document on the proposed system is of public knowledge.

He says they will oppose user fees and upfront payments for patients.

The cost of the NHI is estimated at 128-billion-Rands in 2012 and is expected to increase to about 267-billion-Rands in 2020.
