Bulgaria’s National Assembly unanimously adopted at first reading amendments to the budget of the National Health Insurance Fund. The hospitals are to receive an extra EUR 38 million from this year’s budget of the  National Health Insurance Fund to cover expenditures which exceeded the limits set by the fund in 2015 and 2016.

The parliamentary groups voiced their support for the amendments, but the opposition expressed criticism related to bad management decisions. The MP from the Movement for Rights and Freedoms Hasan Ademov commented that the additional funding would not solve the profound problems in this country’s health system.
