Draft Medical Schemes Amendment Bill, 2018

The Draft Medical Schemes Amendment Bill, 2018, has been released.

The Council for Medical Schemes has released the Draft Medical Schemes Amendment Bill for comment.

You can download it from this site, here: Draft Medical Schemes Amendment Bill,2018

I don’t find this nearly as interesting as the Draft NHI Bill, however, it is an important part of the legislation surrounding the necessary changes for NHI Bill.

It concerns changes to the Medical Schemes Act to allow for the changes necessary through the NHI Bill.

It will be of interest to you, if you are involved in the medical schemes industry.
