Polish private sector driven out by reforms:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Private medical service providers in Poland have expressed dismay the government's decision to centralise healthcare management (see Clinica No 996, p 10) since it will end a system that has allowed the regional funds, known as Patients' Funds, to buy from public and private healthcare providers. The new system, which will come into effect by January 1 2003, will mean that funds are channelled to the local governments, which own the public hospitals, so they would be unlikely to give contracts to private hospitals whose services are more expensive. Private health insurance companies are also in the dark as to how they can do business with a state monopoly.
