“Doctors have the right to have the rates of their consultations and hospital procedures reviewed,” clarified the author of the Law 87-01 that created the Dominican Social Security System.
Díaz Santana reminded the Medical Association that if they do not give services to the population citizens do not complain to the ARS.
“This supposed fight of the Dominican Medical College is not understood, supposedly against the Health Risk Managerswhen in practice what they are affecting is the affiliates, especially the poorest ones”, pointed out the expert.
“The problem is that social security has a limit in terms of income and is based on the salary of workers, which in most are very few.”
Díaz explained that what can be done is to negotiate in the instance of the social security council to reach a point of agreement between both parties.
For this, the economist needs to hire a qualified international consulting company to carry out an analysis and submit the conclusions they can from the Social Security Council to find a solution.
