Taxpayers in South Africa are
facing the harsh prospect of soon paying more than three types of different tax
for medical services.
This comes after the Minister of
Health, Aaron Motsoaledi, published the ANC’s long promised White Paper on the
National Health Insurance, in the government Gazette last month.
Armand Grayling of
AfriBusiness says the NHI is a wonderful idea
at the expense of already overburdened taxpayers.
"The South Africans government
has issued a new model for the national health insurance."
"This model needs to be
implemented over the 14 years and will cost the taxpayers at least R256
"The financing will be done
through increase of taxes over across the board for all South Africans and
AfriBusiness due everything in this power to deliver commentary against any
proposed legislation which will have negative impacts on its members and the
whole of South Africa."
