Dr. Madjarov: There is money in the NHIF, but someone does not want to allocate them for hospital care

The protest of the medics in Veliko Turnovo [ because of the low rewards of the workers there ] (https://www.zdrave.net/%D0%9D%D0%BE%D0%B2%B8%D0%BD% D0%B8/%D0%A2%D1%8A%D1%80%D0%BD%D0%D0%B2%D1%81%D0%BA%D0%B8%D1%82%D0%B5-% D0%BC%D0%B5%D0%B4%D0%B8%D1%86%D0%B8-%D0%BF%D0%Be%D0%B8%81%D0%BA%B0%D1 %85%D0%B0-%D0%B4%D0%be%D1%81%D1%82%D0%be%D0%B9%D0%BD%D0%D0%D0%B7%B0%D0 D0 %BF%D0%BB%D0%B0%D1%89%D0%B0%D0%BD%D0%B5-%D0%B8-%D1%80%D0%B5%D1%88%B5%D0 D0 %BD%D0%B8%D1%8F-%D0%B4%D0%BD%D0%B5%D1%81/N23659) will probably be followed by other hospitals in the country. This is predicted by BLS Chairman Dr. Ivan Madjarov in an interview with Zdrave.net. According to him, the regional and municipal hospitals have already been alarmed that with the available volume of work, with the prices of the clinical pathways that were provided during the negotiations in the spring, and with the budgets they have, to raise salaries to the levels set out in R&D.

"Some numbers were indicated, and doctors and nurses expected to receive this increase. Moreover, there were places where the state fulfilled its commitments as an employer: Emergency Medical Centers; Children's crib to the municipalities and the salaries were raised there, "said Dr. Madjarov.

"The NHIF report as of September 30 shows that we have been right since the beginning of the year when we claimed that funds in the budget of the cashier are sufficient to have an increase in prices of clinical pathways not by 25%, but by 30-35 % We are currently talking about savings from funds in the NHIF budget, which is again planned to be spent on another, and that in the background that 80% of the municipal and regional hospitals in the country cannot achieve these already minimum remuneration. 2000 BGN for doctors and BGN 1500 are not a big salaries for highly qualified labor. My appeal is society and those who are interested in the situation in our healthcare do not succumb to the false, hazy explanations from the NHIF Supervisory Board, "he added.

The President of the BMA stated that there are clear indicators to give a complete picture of the financial status of the cashier - macro -framework of the budget of the NHIF, distributed on the feather of funds in hospital, primary outpatient, specialized outpatient care, medicines and medical devices, as well as the implementation On the budget as of September 30, its expected implementation as of November 30. Careful viewing of these indicators is the easiest way to trace whether there is an attempt to conceal funds and abuse, he said.

"By tracking these indicators, it becomes more than clear that in hospital care there are savings of BGN 135 million, and there are about BGN 170 million in a reserve. I say to the colleagues in the country and the directors of the medical establishments - there is enough money in the budget of the NHIF. In reality, the savings provide the average monthly budgets that have so far had hospitals, and the release of the reserve would allow them to distribute to the medical establishments an additional 35 million per month until the end of the year, "said Dr. Madjarov.
