North Side MLA Ezzard Miller calls for Caymanians in certain categories to be freed of all medical bills owed to the government.
His call comes on the heels of his criticism of government’s decision to waive backlogged licensing fees.
On Wednesday (1 May) he made the call in a statement which he issued in his capacity as MLA and, not as Opposition Leader.
He said he wants government’s generosity for forgiving licensing fees to be extended to cover the medical bills of Caymanians; Over the age of 60, those on an income below the minimum wage, those on government poor relief, or those who just don’t have adequate health insurance coverage.
We reached out to the government for comment on Mr. Miller’s call. We are awaiting a response.
