From November 1, private patients at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) will have to pay their money up front for medical treatment.
Minister of Health Donville Inniss told the media this evening in a post-Cabinet press conference that patients were still being delinquent in paying for health care. He noted that the debt is about $4 million a year.
Inniss said this new measure will also be in place for patients coming from overseas.
