A number of state employees do not have a Health Insurance Scheme. The Minister of Civil Service Affairs, Alain Wong, is, therefore, advocating for a health insurance for all of the employees.
Minister Wong explained that the 150,000 to 200,000 State employees have a huge impact on public hospitals. His aim, therefore, is to reduce this pressure, which would allow hospitals to provide a better service. As a matter of fact, individuals with a health insurance plan will turn to the private sector for medical attention.
The health insurance will be similar to an automobile one.
In a statement to DefiMedia.info, the minister affirms that he has not yet scheduled a date for the introduction of the plan. They have been working on it for a few months, and they now need certain statistical information to go further.
