A powerful attack on the government has been posted on his Facebook profile by Pavlos Polakis. Former Deputy Health Minister accuses her of doubling compensation to clinicians who give beds to ICUs to treat coronavirus.
“What did the government mean when it talked about 'private health cooperation and assistance'? Was this the “qualification” that you were ready to do for a long time? Shame and shame! ”Says Paul Polakis.

“What did the government mean when it came to talking about 'cooperation and assistance from the private health sector'? Was this the 'qualification' that you were ready to do for a long time? Shame and disgust!
The government agreed and passed the Legislative Content Act (EPP) to give EOPYY twice as much compensation (ie from € 800 to € 1,600 a day!) To clinicians who will provide ICU beds in their clinics for the treatment of coronary syndrome!
This raises two serious ethical and economic issues:
a) Some in the crisis, in the panic that the country is currently experiencing, all they keep thinking is how they will save! b) We at SYRIZA changed the EOPYY Uniform Benefits Regulation (ECDYY) at the end of 2018, streamlining the process of patient care in private ICUs paid by EOPYY (when a bed in a public hospital could not be found). In fact, in addition to the increase in daily ICU hospitalization and the payment of separate actions or interventions not previously envisaged (eg dialysis-dialysis), we excluded this expense from the clawback of clinics as an incentive to cover them. needs (eg flu). This has resulted in the approximately 30 ICU beds available to us in the private sector in 2018 becoming 70 in 2019! (before coronavirus). These ICU beds do not receive increased hospitalization and remain with the ECDC invoice. That is to say, the government rewards those who make the predator now in crisis and not those who have supported the needs and the past.
The government should proceed with the 'mandate' by mandatory extension of the EOPYY Convention with private ICUs to all beds available in the private sector, at the price applicable to all and not selectively giving 'gifts' to some! We could discuss a small increase in daily ICU hospitalization (eg 20-25%) for the duration of the pandemic, due to the decline in turnover, but for everyone! “
