Accelerate national health insurance scheme — Insurance Association

Given the ballooning cost for health care in Jamaica especially since the novel coronavirus pandemic, the Insurance Association of Jamaica (IAJ) is calling on the Government to accelerate the national health insurance scheme.

The much-talked-about national health insurance scheme for Jamaica has been on the mind of successive Administrations but only since the health financing reform initiated in 2008 with the no-user-fee policy in public facilities, has there been any serious attempt put in place to introduce such a system.

The current Andrew Holness Administration has been talking about introducing the National Health Insurance Plan (NHIP) to increase overall resources for the health sector, increase efficiency in the use of available resources, promote sustainable health care financing, and improve the quality and coverage of health services.
