â€œSpecialist Doctors did not receive their money from the National Health Insurance Agency (CNAS) since the month of May, in these conditions they will no longer be able to continue their activityâ€, underlines a press release form 9th of August, stated by the Alliance for Health in Romania (APSR).
â€œIn two years since the program SIUI was implemented â€“ instrument that accounts for the medical services delivered by the doctors and the value of payments to doctors â€“ it demonstrated that it has many errors and especially faces much resistance from the County Health Insurance Agency (CJAS), maintenance and updating is performed inadequate and the database is obsolete.
These problems lead to the destruction of the specialty ambulatory, when the normality of the situation would represent helping them to diversify and thus lead to lower costs and an efficient management of funds â€œ, sais Cristian Hotoboc, the president of the Alliance for Health in Romania.
According to the press release, the specialists doctors that signed the contract with CNAS, based on which they have to be paid, is made ambiguous, because there is no legal way to prosecute the counterparty on its contractual obligations.
Also, Dr. Cosmin Alexandrescu, Vice President of ASPR, warns of the actual danger of the disappearance of the specialty ambulatory. â€œSimultaneously, we find the unreasonable delay of payments from the Health Insurance Agency â€“ the last payments made were in the month of May â€“ and, respectively, the increase by 50 times the royalties required by the PMB for the spaces in which doctors have their medical practices.
Probably, the position on the market is wanted only for the big health care chains, which have a greater capacity for negotiations and are more easily influenced by the Health Insurance Agency.â€
