Pharmacies protests against compensation

WILLEMSTAD – Despite the request of Minister Ben Whiteman of Health, Environment and Nature to wait with the protest, the Association of Pharmacy Owners (UAE) decided today from 8 am to provide medicines only for cash. The action was taken on Friday already, but was discontinued during the weekend by the pharmacists who had to give service on Sunday.

Patients who fall under the basic insurance, can no longer get medicine with their insurance card of SVB, PP, GTZ and FZOG. They will have to be paid in cash, which for many patients is impossible. ,, We have long been accommodating to the patient, but we cannot continue, "said President of the UAE Shaheen Elhage. The pharmacists get from the insurance company a fee of 7 guilders on top of the cost and they find that not enough.
