The Constitutional Court has deferred indefinitely a decision on the law banning health insurers from making and disbursing profits. The president of the Constitutional Court, Ivetta Macejková, announced on Wednesday, March 31, that the court had adjourned the proceedings for two reasons.

The first is that the court has to request a standpoint from the cabinet with regard to the fact that talks are under way about the same matter at the European Commission, which has also asked the Slovak government to provide a standpoint. The European Commission is inquiring into whether the respective amendment to the Act on Health Insurers is in accordance with EU legislation, the SITA newswire wrote.

The second reason is the fact that the court has to review whether these proceedings can be combined with proceedings on a similar motion, which was submitted to the Constitutional Court by the Bratislava I District Court.
