According to the Association of Healthcare Funders of Zimbabwe, the new charges have already been approved by the government.In a statement last week, the association said the medical aid subscriptions for general practitioners and dentists had increased by 40% while the same facility for hospitals had increased by 30%.
“The minimum amount one can pay is now between $ 15 and $100 per month,” government sources said yesterday.
The new changes will make it difficult for Zimbabweans on the medical aid scheme to access medication as they may not be able to cope with the new charges.
