The three-member committee in charge of negotiating with private healthcare companies, which consists of two representatives of the Agency and one deputizing by Paul Polakis, Minister of Health, on behalf of the health ministry asked private hospitals to continue contracts, to give 25% of the available beds to EOPYY without clinics seek the envisaged participation from the insured (30 % of EOPYY members and 50 % for those who belong to OGA).
This condition is considered inviolable, and put in the form of extortion against all the 100 general clinics which have a contract with EOPYY including large hospitals such as IASO, the Athens Medical Group, the Health Group, and for other 40 psychiatric units.
The committee called the private hospitals to assume the cost of the management of blood bottles requested by patients to perform operations, which, according to the report, costs 250 euros per bottle, who- as seems they asked to pay by patients!
The clinics will have to contribute and salaries of employees of EOPYY officials involved in the control of documentation, and implementation of control in real time. The ” price ” was set at 1.8 % of monthly submissions clinics, about 600 million Euro.
Finally, among the conditions is to pay the employed in clinical EOPYY for monthly submissions of sanatoria.
Now businesses are thinking not accepting the extension given to the signing of new contracts by the end of June, and canceling the existing contract with EOPYY, which means that the insured will be found unsecured.
