Slovak pharmacists plan to sue their government at the Slovak Constitutional Court and the European Court for Human Rights in Strasbourg. The total debt of health insurance companies to pharmacies has already exceeded Sk6 billion (€143 billion), daily SME reported.
Slovak Chamber of Pharmacists' (SleK) Katarina Hruškovičová said that a third of the arrears come from the overdue debt of collapsed health insurer company Perspektíva. The state's deadline to cover the debt lapsed in May 2003.
