Health cost to be probed

Johannesburg - South Africa's private health care costs will be analysed by a wide-ranging Competition Commission inquiry, City Press reported on Sunday.

The inquiry would be similar to that launched into the banking sector, which had resulted in a drastic reduction of fees, said commission spokesperson Trudi Makhaya.

However, the terms of reference have not yet been finalised.

Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi welcomed the inquiry.

"The cost of private health care in this country is expensive, destructive and unsustainable," he told the paper.
