Doctors given right to refuse treatment

DOCTORS will be able to check a list of names of those who have not paid their health insurance premiums and refuse treatment to anyone on the list. That is according to a new health insurance law effective January 2006, according to the Národna Obroda daily.

The list of names will be updated monthly.

Health insurance companies can publish the names of non-payees, according to the law.

However, unlike social security provider Socialna poistovna, the companies cannot publish the names of companies who have not paid the employer’s tax contributions.

By the same token, employees whose insurance hasn't been paid by their employers will not be included on the list.
