This article was originally published in Clinica
Brazil's commission for economic affairs (CAE) has been asked by parliament to hold an open consultation on reforming healthcare reimbursement. The project will entail a "systematic reform of the reimbursement of health service providers and their relationship with hospitals, [clinical pathology] laboratories and healthcare programmes", according to a statement by the Senate's public relations office. The CAE, which was formally given the project on September 1, following its approval by the chamber of deputies, is considering the plans, and has yet to announce details of when and how the project will be held.
