Patients paying more for private healthcare

The Competition Commission has made damning findings against private healthcare.
After it’s five year probe dubbed the Health Market Inquiry, the Commission has found that patients are paying more for private healthcare.
The report was presented by Justice Sandile Ngcobo in Johannesburg today.
Its preliminary findings established that existing service providers were anti-competitive and that medical scheme administrators were making huge profits by over-utilising services such as acute-care.
It recommended divestiture and a moratorium on new licences for the three largest firms namely: Netcare, Life Healthcare and Mediclinic International.
