State budget approved by Government is, according to the Association of Health Insurance Companies, actually unsustainable. President of the Association, Katarína Kafková, notes that concerns about real fulfilling raises especially because of the payments for state policyholders. Government, according to her, in the next year budget proposes the increasing of payment for state policyholder to 4.25%, but state will in real pay for its policyholders € 70 million less. The reason is that Government expects that number of state policyholders will next year decrease from current 3 350 000 to 3 150 000.
