Doctors’ chamber seeks review of state health insurer, claiming it behaves as a monopoly

The Slovak Medical Chamber (SLK) claims that the state-run health insurer, Všeobecná Zdravotná Poisťovňa (VšZP), is behaving like a monopoly and SLK has asked Slovakia’s Anti-Monopoly Office (PMÚ) to review the situation, according to information presented to the TASR newswire by PMÚ’s office director Tibor Vrzgula. SLK suggested that VšZP has been misusing its dominant role by establishing inappropriate conditions.
