Action Plan – Health Services

One of the goals of the State Health Insurance Law, implemented in 1995, was to lead the health funds to financial stability and economic strength.
Another goal was to create an inclusive and comprehensive package of services – including components that the health funds had not offered before the law was enacted – to which all residents would be entitled. Has the law attained these goals? Not yet. Most of the recommendations of the CSPS health team wish to make progress toward these goals. The recommendations also explain the main reasons for the non-attainment of these important goals thus far.
