The bill to increase health care spending has been included in the list of legislative acts of the government. It is about the change announced during talks with social partners, as well as during the presentation of the Polish deal, regarding an increase in healthcare funding to 6%. GDP in 2023 and up to 7% in 2027
At the meeting with social partners this week, Health Minister Adam Nidzelsky spoke again about the additional billions of zlotys and what should be spent on them. He also asked, inter alia, whether government wage regulations should be applied to the minimum, or to solutions that allow discretion, but more money for bonuses for managers. This surprised the partners a little, because they had already agreed with the Ministry of Health to work on the first option. . But for increases to occur, more resources are needed. At the moment, the government sets the rules for calculating percentages. GDP in order not to pay an additional topic of the budget. It will be more difficult if the percentage is provided. The GDP of health will be higher. She expects it A draft law amending the law on health care services financed by public funds and the public finance law.
The Deputy Minister of Health, Swamir Jadomsky, is responsible for its development. The government will adopt it starting from the third quarter of this year.
How is she now?
“Bearing in mind the necessity of relentless pursuit of improving the health care system in order to increase the availability of health services, increase the wages of medical personnel, modernize and modernize the infrastructure of health care facilities, and develop modern technologies in the health service, the need to increase the amount of public funds allocated Annually to finance health care At present, the minimum level of spending on health care in a given year has been set in Article 131C of the August 27, 2004 Law on Health Care Services Funded from Public Funds (Journal of Laws 2021 p. 1285) which guarantees an increase in expenses To protect health up to 6% of GDP by 2024 and subsequent years“- We read in the list. It should be noted here that in 2018 the government committed that it will be 5.8 percent in 2023. However, when calculating the proportion of GDP that we spend on health, the government refers to the GDP of two years ago.
How is it after the change?
It is planned to increase healthcare funding to 6%. GDP in 2023 and up to 7% in 2027
The project prepared by the Ministry of Health also provides for an increase in the powers of the Minister of Health to provide the area free of hydrocarbons with a specific subsidy.
Current regulations allow planning for this support only at the budget planning stage for a given year. The changes introduced additionally allow the transfer to the National Health Fund in the form of a substantive subsidy or as a supplement to the reserve fund, money that will be identified as savings Also in the budget implementation phase. In order to enable full use in the above-mentioned method of entering confirmed savings provisions that enable the Minister responsible for health affairs with the approval of the Minister responsible for public finance, Make changes to the spending plan of transferring funds between the departments of the state budget, within the part of the budget at their disposal– We read in the assumptions.
The project also provides other assumptions that would allow a different calculation of health expenditures. At the same time, in Article 50, Section 6 of the Law of 27 August 2009 on Public Finance (Journal of Laws 2021, Articles 305 and 1236), it is proposed to add point 9, allowing the exclusion of expenditures in part of the state budget “Health And in the section “Health Protection” in other parts of the state budget, from the application of the provisions of paragraphs 1a-1c, 4 and 5 of this article, similarly, among other things, in the case of expenditures allocated to national defense ”- written.
