Lusa - Business News - Portugal: Govt. provides €1.4 bln to pay off debts to health sector suppliers




Lisbon, Nov. 13 (Lusa) - The Health Minister said on Monday that €1.4 billion will be transferred by the end of the year to settle debts to suppliers in the sector.
Adalberto Campos Fernandes was speaking at the parliamentary committees of Health and Finance as part of a detailed appreciation of the State Budget.
The transfer of this funding begins a new cycle in Health sector accounts, the minister said, bringing them closer to stability.
In the third quarter of this year, arrears to health sector suppliers amounted to €2.072 billion.
The first installment of this amount will be transferred by 31 December 2017 via additional funding of €400 million for hospitals. By the same date, there will be an increase in the share capital of EPE hospitals by €500 million, and at the beginning of 2018 there will be a further capital increase for hospitals, also of €500 million.
Compared with the State Budget for 2017, the 2018 budget of the National Health Service (SNS) will increase by €500 million.
