N.H.I. pilot will continue in reduced form

The murky future of National Health Insurance is beginning to clear up. A release by the Social Security Board indicates that the N.H.I. southside pilot project has been extended through September. However, due to cost considerations it will be modified. While basic primary care will remain free of charge, other hospital and pharmaceutical services will require at least partial payment from patients enrolled in the scheme. During the six month period government will continue to search for an acceptable way to finance the eventual introduction of at least some form of N.H.I. nation-wide.
