|Overview : |
Over the past years, the NaCC received several complaints in the private healthcare sector. These complaints raised concerns of anticompetitive practices which may impede competition and increase the cost of healthcare services. One such example is the twofold complaints regarding Namibia Association of Medical Aid Funds (NAMAF) in respect of its application of the benchmark tariff system. The functionining of the private healthcare market as well as the public healthcare market through the Public Service Medical Aid Scheme (PSEMAS) are dependent on the annual determination of benchmark tariffs by NAMAF given that all the medical aid funds including PSEMAS are linked to this system.
The Namibian Competition Commission requires services from an experienced local consultant to conduct a study in order to understand the structure and provision of private healthcare in Namibian with a specific focus on analysing the cost trends over the years. A study into the provision of private healthcare would assess the state f competition as well as provide policy advice and competition guidelines that would promote fair competition amongst the different players in the sector.
