Uninsured Greek Patients Skip Hospitals

According to the, there are more and more cases of uninsured patients in Achaia, who are either unable to pay the hospital or wish to avoid confirming their hospitalization to the tax department so they leave from the hospital and disappear.
Some of the incidents have been confirmed by the Governor of the 6th Peripheral Health Department of Western Greece, Panagiotis Katsivelas, highlighting in this way the inability of many uninsured Greeks to afford  medical treatment in hospitals.
Katsivelas stressed that there is already a plan in progress, through which the country is seeking funds from the National Strategic Reference Framework (NSRF), known as ESPA, in order to meet the needs of uninsured hospital patients.
