Ministerial Green for a time extension in the financing of OKYPY deficits – What the Government Representative says

After the meeting, the Government Representative Mr. Konstantinos Letymiotistold reporters, that “with a view to addressing the deficits of the State Health Services Organization, the Council of Ministers approved the bill entitled “The Establishment of State Health Services Organization (Amendment) Law of 2024.

Purpose of of the proposed bill is the granting of a time extension to the financing of the deficits of the State Health Services Organization (OKYPY), for one more year, i.e. until 31.5.2025.

The Law on the establishment of the State Health Services Organization provided that the state would finance any deficits of the Organization for the first five years immediately following the introduction and operation of the outpatient health care of the General Health System on June 1, 2019 – May 31, 2024 .

The reason why it is considered appropriate to extend the time period for covering the deficits of the NHS for another year, i.e. until May 31, 2025, is mainly to ensure the smooth operation of the country's health system given that OKYpY is one of the most important providers of health services, but also the fact that the Organization was called upon to support the state in the management of the Covid-19 pandemic, with an impact on its smooth operation.

In view of the last plenary session of the Parliament before Easter, which will take place on 25.4.2024 and the suspension of its work due to the upcoming Elections, it was deemed necessary to promote the said amending bill”.
