Health Minister confident about reform

HEALTH Minister, Rudolf Zajac, is confident that his health reforms will be passed through parliament in the hope that some independent MPs would also hold up their hands for the six reform bills.

The ruling coalition MPs yesterday agreed with the transformation of health insurance companies and healthcare institutions to joint stock companies. Zajac agreed, however, that 51 percent of hospitals, health resorts and institutes with nation-wide significance would stay in the state hands, SITA news agency reported.

In order to convince MPs to support his reform, which the parliament will discuss at the end of this month, Zajac conceded to several other compromises.
