More health reforms on the way

THE SECOND amendment to the healthcare code will not be the last one, Health Minister Rudolf Zajac stated.

The amendment to be voted on today June 30 is the second in the past six months, the daily Pravda reported.

Minister Zajac said, however, that it would not be the last, and a third amendment would be necessary by the end of the year.

The law to be voted on today relates to healthcare insurance, already criticized by the parliamentary legislative committee.

The committee says that some parts of the law are at odds with the constitution and some are just not applicable in real life situations.

However, Zajac insists that the law is applicable and that the amendments are improving it even further.
