Dozens of Namibian Doctors Implicated in Medical Aid Scheme Fraud

The finance ministry has identified 84 doctors who are accused of stealing millions through the government’s medical aid scheme, while at least N$13 million (U.S.$873,000) has been paid back to the state as some doctors are allegedly rushing to avoid charges.

This information is contained in a yet-to-be-published forensic report, which looked into the issue of fraud and the abuse of the Public Service Employee Medical Aid Scheme (Psemas).

The investigation was undertaken due to ever-increasing government medical aid spending, resulting in a 2017 resolution to investigate the claiming patterns of healthcare service providers.
