Health insurer Dôvera has notified 32 hospitals of its decision to terminate its contract with them, the SITA newswire wrote on May 5.

Five of the hospitals will be cut off as of the beginning of July, Slovakia's biggest private insurer stated.

Dôvera CEO Martin Šimun stated that these are hospitals in Medzilaborce, Nová Baňa, Hnúšťa, Púchov and Modra. Dôvera has not yet concluded audits in the remaining 27 health care facilities. Šimun said that they might sign contracts with some of them and with others not while they may select only specific departments at some hospitals. The insurer promised to publish its final decision in June. SITA
