Government will discuss ways to establish a single public health insurer

The cabinet of Robert Fico will discuss a draft plan, prepared by the Health Ministry, to establish as single public health insurer. One idea for realising this is for the government to buy the shares of the two private insurers currently operating in Slovakia’s public health insurance market, the SITA newswire reported.

The cabinet of Robert Fico will discuss a draft plan, prepared by the Health Ministry, to establish as single public health insurer. One idea for realising this is for the government to buy the shares of the two private insurers currently operating in Slovakia’s public health insurance market, the SITA newswire reported.

The Health Ministry has worked on several alternatives, including expropriation of the private health insurers.

“Following the implementation of one of these solutions, the system of health insurance can be closed and a sufficiently effective unitary system of health insurance created,” reads the report of the ministry, as quoted by SITA.

Health Minister Zuzana Zvolenská should finalise the agreed project by the end of September this year.
