The proposal to amend the Healthcare Act and the Mandatory Health Insurance Act will be finished by June and put to public consultation, Beroš said in Parliament in response to Social Democratic Party (SDP) MP Andreja Marić who warned about a number of unresolved issues faced by the healthcare system.

The second phase will include the amendment of subsidiary legislation and the adjustment of the network of public health services, he added.

“I know you are impatient, but these changes have been waiting for decades and a time frame of several months is irrelevant,” the health minister said.

He said that the reform would provide for a new way of agreeing and paying for healthcare by taking into account service quality.

“So far we have been paying for healthcare in an inadequate way. We have been paying for someone to do that work and from now on we need to start paying for how the work is done,” Beroš said.
