Anton Kováčik, director general of the state-run Všeobecná Zdravotná Poisťovňa (VsŽP) health insurer, has stepped down due to personal reasons, VsŽP speaker Petra Balážová told the SITA newswire on February 22.

The biggest health insurer in Slovakia is to hold an extraordinary general meeting on February 27.

An unidentified source told the Pravda daily that Kováčik was stepping down because the insurer was losing money under his leadership. Particularly challenging was Kováčik’s plan to provide financial support to four teaching hospitals, the daily wrote.

Kováčik took up the position in September 2006. He had previously led the second largest health insurance company in Slovakia, the state-run Spoločná Zdravotná Poisťovňa.
