Priorities of the Office

  • Improving public health care, while considering its financial sustainability, with an emphasis on retaining the rights of compulsory health insurance in the fullest form possible and a clearer separation between public and private health care (abolishing complementary health insurance).
  • Ensuring the financial sustainability of compulsory health insurance with a more solidarity-based distribution of the burden among insured persons and retaining existing rights as much as possible.
  • Implementing a transparent and uniform system of public procurement in the health-care sector and ensuring the effective procurement of medicines, medical equipments and other equipment.
  • Re-defining the management, operation and supervision of public health-care institutions and increasing the responsibility of directors and boards.
