Representatives of the government will not inform MPs on the details and development of the international disputes pertaining to the profit ban that had been imposed on health insurers in the past, the SITA newswire wrote.

Opposition MPs raised this request on Tuesday, December 11, through a procedural motion submitted by the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) boss Pavol Frešo. The government was asked to submit a report on the course of arbitration processes related to the profit ban. "I think that the amounts are so high that we should debate it in parliament," Frešo argued. However, only 59 deputies gave it the thumbs up, 73 were against, and thus, his proposal was turned down.
