Health charges from April 1

Under the new health law passed by parliament yesterday, to take effect April 1, patients will have to pay Sk50 (1.2 euro) per day for hospital visits and Sk20 (0.48 euro) for prescriptions. Children will not be required to pay the charges.

Health Minister Rudolf Zajac said: "The law brings increased payments for patients of Sk40-45 [approximately 1 euro] per month. But mainly it brings assurance that the health system is moving in the right direction."
