More utterly misguided criticism of medical schemes

I wish this would be the last time I say this (or the first or the second):

“Medical Schemes are non-profit entities are don’t make profits for shareholders.” There are administration companies that charge administration fees that have shareholders and make profits. However, if my medical scheme pays me a greater benefit, they will be removing a benefit from someone else or making everyone pay more in contributions.

It really is a simple idea, but clearly this misguided “GP” doesn’t understand the first thing about the organisation he is criticising. ┬áNote that I’m not commenting on a particular medical scheme’s practices, but rather the universal reality of medical schemes.
