In early 2019, a number of healthcare providers and members of Solutionist Thinkers and the National Health Care Professionals Association made allegations that they were being treated unfairly by medical aid schemes based on race and ethnicity.

The Council for Medical Schemes (CMS) launched an investigation into these allegations in terms of its regulatory mandate. This led to the establishment of an independent investigation panel to conduct an inquiry into these allegations. The inquiry became known as the Section 59 Inquiry. The Panel members are Advocate Tembeka Ngcukaitobi SC (Chairperson); Advocate Adila Hassim; and Advocate Kerry Williams.

The Independent Investigation Panel has released the below Interim Report Summary which is now open for Public Comment.

PsySSA invites its members to comment on the findings of this report by submitting all comments to fatima@psyssa.com by the 15th of February 2021.

We look forward to hearing from you.
