Public hearings on NHI Bill to start in October

With public hearings on the National Health Insurance (NHI) Bill set to begin in October, the chairperson of the portfolio committee on health, Dr Sibongiseni Dhlomo, has written to all parties represented in the National Assembly.

According to a statement released by Parliament on Sunday, the communication was to ensure all parties informed their constituencies of the hearings.

“Information about public hearings in other provinces will be communicated timeously before they begin.
