Clarke, Ms M to ask the Minister of Health

Whether, with reference to funding of the National Health Insurance through taxes, the rate of tax will be uniform for all the individual taxpayers; if not, how will the different taxes be calculated; if so, what are the relevant details?


As was debated in the Portfolio Committee of the National Assembly during 2023 and described in Clause 49 of the National Health Insurance Bill, the possible tax amendments will be introduced through a Money Bill by the Minister of Finance as and when appropriate and earmarked for use by the Fund, subject to the transitional arrangements as provided in Section 57 of the Bill.
