  1. The National Health Insurance Scheme is the biggest scam in the history of this country. It is bigger than the Mukula, Fire Tenders and Speed Cameras scandals put together. PF trying to defraud Zambian when most vulnerable ( sick at hospitals) is disgusting and despicable.

  2. I WAS JUST LOOKING AT THE LIST OF SOME ACCREDITED HEALTH INSTITUTIONS,
    WHAT A MESS.
    SOME DONT EVEN HAVE DOCTORS, EQUIPMENT AND STANDARDS.
    WHAT HEALTH SERVICES ARE WE GOING TO GET FROM THESE.
    ZAMBIANS LETS STOP THIS NONSENSE.
    AM ANNOYED, FIRST TIME

  3. Do people also qualify to be taken to morning side hospital in South African for specialized treatment? Cause that would make real sense ka

  4. This is a good idea that will be turned into a major scam & cash cow.For starters the director General was recruited fraudulently.It is all Luapula United.
