Government to propose limiting COVID-19 treatment prices at private hospitals



Тhe government is set to discuss at its Tuesday session changes to the health protection law in order to limit the prices for treatment of COVID-19 patients at private hospitals to Mden 40,000-305,000, Health Minister Venko Filipche wrote in a Facebook post.

The country’s Health Insurance Fund, he added, has the authority to set the upper limit for COVID-19 treatment at private health facilities.

“Regulating prices is crucial to avoid a situation where the majority of the population can’t afford to be treated at private hospitals. I’m calling on all MPs to support the regulation of prices for treatment of COVID-19 patients at private hospitals. Amid a pandemic, it’s crucial they endorse this legal solution, set to make treatment at private hospitals affordable for all citizens,” said Health Minister Filipche.
