BRATISLAVA. The Ministry of Finance of the Slovak Republic does not take a “single euro” for health care from the Ministry of Health of the Slovak Republic.

The finance minister said this on Wednesday Igor Matovic (OĽANO).

He justified the cessation of funding for health care by saying that private health insurance companies would pay the money to their accounts on Cyprus.

“We were explaining the views. The basic thing was 232 million euros – the commitment of expenses this year,” Matovič informed about the meeting with the Minister of Health Vladimír Lengvarský (OĽANO nominee).

According to him, the representatives of the Ministry of Health explained that it was only a matter of complying with the law.

According to him, hospitals for the pandemic will provide less health care.

According to the Minister of Finance, the funds allocated to them will be postponed. Otherwise, he said, private health insurers would transfer profits to Cypriot accounts and there would be no money for sick people.

“We are protecting money for sick people for the time when healthcare providers will provide real healthcare,” he added, adding that he would receive the money when they really needed it.
