Minister Motsoaledi Speaks On Scrapping The Medical Schemes Tax Credit

Her conclusion was that 1.9 million could find the scrapping made their medical scheme membership unaffordable so that they would drop out of their schemes and add to the already over-burdened public health system. In this PowerFM interview, the Minister of Health discusses the report and its findings, among other matters. Listen to the interview below.
