If we are always for the people while performing all tasks and jobs in all fields, then in the medical field, for the people here is for the patient, for the patient (BN), and pay special attention to the poor class of patients, not only to patients with money conditions.
For some unknown reason, on May 9, 2022, the Ministry of Health issued Official Letter 2348 to Vietnam Social Insurance, annulling Official Letter 2009 dated April 12, 2018 on payment of technical services for testing. , diagnosis and treatment using borrowed machines, machines located at the .
On the same day, Vietnam Social Security directed relevant units to stop paying health insurance premiums for related technical services using borrowed and ordered machines from May 9.
It was a sudden “blow” that stunned all the countries that have been using the machine for a long time.
It is well known that when the state cannot provide the budget for the purchase of a new generation of very accurate but expensive subclinical testing machines, it is only then that organizations bid to have suppliers to lend to them. order their new machine, provided that their chemicals must be used for the new machine to give accurate results.
Official Letter 2009 dated April 12, 2018 allowing payment of technical services for testing, diagnosis and treatment using borrowed machines and machines located at different locations.
Everyone knows, when the state requires step-by-step autonomy, it means that you have to “take care of” all kinds of machines, even expensive ones, for testing and diagnosing patients. For some unknown reason, an official dispatch from the Ministry of Health sent to Vietnam Social Security annulled Official Letter 2009 dated April 12, 2018.
Then, after all patients and patients nationwide simultaneously objected to this “sudden” decision, protesting in many forms, on May 15, the Department of Communication and Emulation and Commendation of the Ministry of Health officially provided information. to the press agency to affirm that the payment of health insurance for ordered and borrowed machines is currently being carried out according to the instructions in Official Dispatch No. 6807/BYT-BH dated November 9, 2018 of the Ministry of Health and is not related to the annulment of Official Letter No. 2009/BYT-KHTC. The Ministry of Health is working with the Vietnam Social Insurance to agree on specific guidelines for implementation units.
It is extremely difficult to understand in an agency so important to the health of the people of the country, the Ministry of Health, that this dispatch “clashes” into the other like that.
Regardless of the reason, the correct implementation of Official Dispatch 2009/BYT-KHTC dated April 14, 2018 in the use of borrowed machines as an indispensable solution for patient diagnosis and testing across the country and due to Health insurance to pay for diagnostic tests is completely reasonable.
This is not a small matter, because it concerns the health and lives of sick people across the country. It’s the story of the nation’s people reacting to suffering. Because no one knows when it will be my turn to be given diagnostic tests using those “order and borrow” machines, and if I have health insurance, I must be paid for the service, not out of pocket. , when I have no money.
