KDH: State should contribute more

MPs for the Christian-Democratic Movement (KDH) will demand additional changes to the state budget draft which they say must be more than just cosmetic. They will propose an increase in the amount that the state pays for health insurance for children, students, pensioners and others which would widen the state budget gap by €90 million, the Sme daily reported.

KDH deputies did not propose any measures to compensate for this potential shortfall, Sme wrote.

The Finance Ministry does not agree with any changes in health insurance payments. The ministry’s State Secretary, Vladimír Tvarožka, said that discussion on the topic had been closed, adding that because of “holes in the rules all the money poured into hospitals consequently leaks out”, as quoted by Sme.
