Revolutionary changes in healthcare

The Polish government will allow public healthcare units to provide commercial services once the limit of publicly funded services runs out, Rzeczpospolita and Dziennik Gazeta Prawna dailies write of a “revolutionary” healthcare act amendment sent to social consultations on Tuesday.
The change will affect some 1800 hospitals and outpatient clinics that have so far been able to operate only based on contracts with the National Health Fund (NFZ).
Hospital budgets could increase as a result by nearly 5%, according the Health Ministry estimates.
Another ground-breaking change contained in the draft is a prohibition to sell, lease or rent out durable assets, which means hospitals will not be able to rent rooms to private laboratories or diagnostic machinery operators.
