l x superintendent de salud Patrick Fernandez (2019–2022) confirmed the “Alternative Project”, presented by Senators Mattis Walker and Ximena Rincón, Democrats; for National Renewal, Rodrigo Galilea and Francisco Chahuan; and the head of the UDI, Javier Macaya, to comply with the Supreme Court ruling Isapres is “much easier to reform and reform” than the shorter legislation the government filed last week,
Said constitutional reform, which was approved this Monday in the Senate Constitution Commission, includes a temporary provision that allows Icepress to raise its base prices in all plans that would be priced lower by the application of the new factor table. ; And the superintendence of health will set up a refund process if companies have to refund the last surplus paid by members, applying the new price retroactively.
in conversation with AssociateThe former superintendent indicated that “this bill, if the executive becomes part of it—which I don’t believe it will— It will be much easier to correct and rectify via signals than this small bill,
The ex-authority explained that “one part of the value which the Supreme Court lays down about the table of factors, the other part is made up of the base value. When the Supreme Court is asked whether it is possible to modify the Price basis, they say they are not going to pronounce that as they have decided on the table of factors”.
Similarly, the academic clarified that “the parts in which I do not agree with the wording of that bill or I would like it to be more clear, that it’s not that way it’s lattice and it stays at zero, I mean I say Yes, you will have to make adjustments to the base price.“, but “not to the same extent that people are also allowed to return, but it is enforceable, not something that is spirit eroded through base price increases.”
Regarding the criticism of this reform, he said that “this is not forgiveness long as the spares are to return, they have to adjust the prices and that makes the system viable, which is another part of the ruling, where it talks about the required stability of the system, I think it can be done,
About the government’s summary law, he indicated that there had been a “legislative technical error” by announcing the refund amount. Secondly, “Having included the FONASA position, I believe this element of FONASA intervening in private insurance is going to complicate the legislative process because there is a lot to discuss, many There are doubts.”
“ISAPRES tone is not correct”
“If the small law is approved in May, the system will be shut down in September,” Gonzalo Simón, president of the Association of Ispresses of Chile, told the Senate Health Commission today. Along these lines, Patricio Fernandez pointed out that “The tone is not correct, it doesn’t help the solution at all, rather it confuses people it seems that they are in a world apart from the people, it communicates in the wrong way and does not contribute to the resolution of that crisis”.
“This is where someone asks if are they up to the task, that they look for alternatives, that they put the ball on the ground,” he insisted, and criticized his spares” have been quite passive in responding,
Notwithstanding the foregoing, he criticized that the government has “the responsibility to provide peace of mind in whatever is said relating to the protection of the right to health”, while the Superintendent of Health “should be a technical entity” because Has elements to provide technical peace of mind as well” Because if not, people” start to be very insecure about what’s going to happen in their health security, wrong decisions are made and that’s the worst.
