That's a half truth and you know it. And membership of the NHI will be voluntary for private hospitals. The government are relying on the fact that anyone wanting business would have to join the NHI. But some practices might opt for the high LSM user group who will opt to remain in private care. Mind you hospitals will still be allowed to serve people not on the NHI but I'm sure the super rich will prefer exclusive places.Private hospitals will be part of the NHI for no sum.
