The Health Care Supervision Office reported revenues of €32.006 million at the end of last year, the SITA newswire wrote. The amount, however, includes a carry-over from previous years of €16.492 million. This sum is the contribution from health insurers that was to be paid shortly before the end of 2008. Total expenditures amounted to €14.978 million and the office closed last year with a positive result of €17.028 million. Excluding the surplus from previous years, the office had a profit of €445,300. These figures were from a report submitted by the Health Care Supervision Office which the Slovak cabinet acknowledged on Wednesday, April 7.
The office further stated in the report that its economic result last year was balanced, considering current expenditures without major discrepancies and with a reduction of material costs. Lower capital expenditures were the result of completion of reconstruction projects of some workplaces, including their equipment.
The ministers also acknowledged a report by the National Labour Inspectorate on uncovering illegal employment in the second half of 2009. According to the report, inspectors carried out fewer inspections in the second half of last year than a year ago but uncovered more cases of illegal employment. The National Labour Inspectorate and labour offices uncovered 1,179 illegally employed persons, while tax offices and police corps found an additional 646 cases of illegal employment in the monitored period.
