The president of the Chamber of Slovak Doctors (SLK) has requested the government increase payments for state policyholders to at least 5 percent of the average wage for 2006.
The chamber bases its argument on the fact that state policyholders accrue much more health care costs than the state contributes, and the health sector is just another field afflicted by excessive solidarity.
It also called on the Speaker of the Parliament, the PM, and the health minister to respect the SLK's comments on submitted draft amendments to health care law, including the Act on Health Care Providers, and the law on the extent of health care. SITA
