The monitoring is to ensure efficiency at the public health service providers.

THE public service commission (PSC) says it is intensifying its monitoring of the operations of Premier Service Medical Aid Society (PSMAS) and Premier Service Medical Investments (PSMI), to ensure efficiency at the public health service providers.

The commission said the government has deployed people into the boards of the two institutions to ensure that there is scrutiny at the highest level.

“So, the government will take the corrective approach if they are anomalies in the way that the institutions are being run vis-à-vis, their original purpose,” PSC Secretary Jonathan Wutawunashe told journalists Friday.

This comes amid concerns that the institutions have no capacity to properly support the healthcare system in the way that the government intends, with some officials saying the state is not realising the value of its regular disbursements to the entities.
