Health laws approved

THE CABINET approved four laws prepared by the Health Ministry as part of the sector reform.

The laws, which still need parliamentary approval, include a law on healthcare, which defines the basic terms of healthcare services, a law on healthcare providers that, among other changes, will enable the transformation of state health facilities into joint stock companies.

Another law divides health insurance into public and individual plans that will enable people the option to pay for additional insurance. The fourth is a law on emergency services, wrote the Slovak daily SME.
