In addition to the unprecedented challenges faced by the health sector in the last 18 months, the private healthcare industry has been increasingly compromised by irregular claims submitted by medical scheme members and healthcare service providers.

These and other growing fraud waste and abuse (FWA) problems will be addressed during a  GEMS Virtual Symposium * on Thursday, 23 September 2021 at 09h00.

Among the topics to be presented and discussed by a panel drawn from partners, providers and policymakers will be the possibility of NHI being a key to reducing healthcare FWA, the impact of the Section 59 interim report on the thinking about FWA in healthcare, employers’ and members’ perspectives, and policy reform particularly for the digital era.
