Second phase of debt elimination

HOSPITALS and private doctors may soon see their old debts covered by the largest health insurer in Slovakia, VšZP. Health Minister Rudolf Zajac confirmed that the cabinet had approved a plan to eliminate part of the debts, which are now at about Sk7 billion (€168 million).

After partial elimination of debts towards pharmacists, hospitals and doctors may look forward to seeing their old bills covered, although Zajac refused to say how much of the total debt is expected to be paid. It is believed, however, that the sum should be at about Sk3 billion (€72 million).
