Private doctors encouraged to take out health insurance

“Fair and equitable medical coverage, as well as incentivesare part of the commitments made by the Ministry of Health”, indicates the National Union of General Medicine (SNMG) in a press release issued to encourage liberal doctors to subscribe to health insurance.

Among the incentives studied, “the assumption by the CNSS of 50% of the expenses of the AMI (Independent health insurance, editor’s note) in favor of contracted private doctors, as well as the improvement of this rate in proportion to the objectives achieved, ”explains Dr Tayeb Hamdi, president of the SNMG, contacted by Médias24.

“Doctors will have to commit to respecting all of the objectives defined in the agreements, such as health insurance prices and objectives in terms of generic prescriptions »he specifies.

According to Dr. Tayeb Hamdi, the first executive meetings are scheduled for this week. Their objective is to define the new methodology for agreements with healthcare providers and the incentive measures for healthcare professionals within the framework of compulsory health insurance (AMO).

These negotiations relate to the royal project of the generalization of medical coverage, “to which all the unions in the liberal sector were involved upstream”specifies the president of the SNMG.

Indeed, several meetings were held between the unions of the liberal sector and the Ministry of Health, including that of March 17, at the end of which three commitments were made by the supervisory ministry. Among them, the revision of the national reference pricing by the end of October 2022.
