Covid-10 Health System Response Monitor (15.06.2020) In consideration of a potential second wave of COVID-19, all countries in Europe will have to find solutions to adequately reimburse hospitals for their additional resource needs related to the care for COVID-19 patients, e.g. by adjusting DRG-based payments, increasing per diem rates, or adding additional fees to FFS system. In addition, given the risk of future pandemics, processes need to be put in place to rapidly adjust payment systems to meet new challenges where needed.

Submitted by cambrosio on Mon, 04/06/2020 - 15:57

Dnevnik.bg (30.03.2020) On 23 March the National Assembly adopted an Emergency Measures and Actions Act. One of the anti-crisis measures that the government has proposed to support businesses because of the Coronavirus epidemic is that the State pays 60% of workers' insurance income for up to 3 months if the employer pays the difference and commits not to cut people off. During this period, the insurance will be paid by the employer and the employee. The aim is to keep jobs until the worst part of the crisis is over because of the coronavirus epidemic.
