Gov’t Creating Road Map for National Health Insurance Plan
Work is apace on the development of a policy proposal and road map for the sustainable implementation of a National Health Insurance Plan (NHIP) for Jamaica.
The proposal will address elements relating to the benefits package, which includes levels and sources of financing, legislative changes, provider network, and the requisite administrative and organisational structures.
The Ministry Paper also revealed that the National Health Fund (NHF) signed a six-month contract in December 2017 with Sanigest Internacional for the development of a policy proposal and road map for the design and effective implementation of the NHIP.
