According to the Vice President of the Employers of Poland, Andrzej Mądrala, the work on a draft amendment to the law on healthcare services financed from public funds should be discontinued. This is because many of its provisions arouse some reservations as to its compatibility with the Constitution of the Republic of Poland and the Code of Administrative Procedure.
The project analysis prepared by the Employers of Poland indicates that the proposed definition of continuity and comprehensiveness of benefits may undermine the principle of equal treatment of entities and maintaining fair competition. Therefore, it may be incompatible with the Constitution of the Republic of Poland in that respect. Then, the proposal to change the way of the consideration of appeals is inconsistent with the Code of Administrative Procedure which guarantees the two-tier procedure and the consideration of an appeal by a public authority of a higher level.
- I count on common sense at the Ministry of Health because this regulation will harm patients - says Andrzej Mądrala.
