Decho Dechev: NHIF should work in three directions – efficiency, effectiveness and control

23 July 2018 | 10:20 | FOCUS News Agency
Sofia. There are currently a strong pharmaceutical lobby that makes its way everywhere and a strong hospital lobby pushing for a policy that is entirely in its favour, National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) Manager Dr. Decho Dechev said in an interview with bTV this morning. Asked about his ideas for the fund’s next budget, Dechev stressed on efficiency, effectiveness and control. “Regardless of the cost of achieving certain effect, NHIF is now paying for everything and is therefore wrong,” Dechev said, adding that the fund should seek cost-effectiveness despite the two lobbies.
Asked about how NHIF will pay its debt to foreign health funds, the manager said: “There are several ways to act in a situation where someone owes something to someone else. One of the suggested ideas, which has been accepted, is to radically change the way Bulgarians go for treatment abroad.”
