Many people have benefited from the National Hospital Insurance Fund.
When the scheme only covered inpatient and maternity services, it was difficult to be corrupted.
However, now that it covers outpatient services in selected private hospitals, there will be loopholes for corrupt practices.
Hospitals could bribe to be included on the list, doctors could charge high fees, and patients could make false claims. The scheme managers should ensure that all loopholes are sealed.
