Belgian report shows limited success in screening of health insurance funds

Browse this blog post

A recent report from the Belgian Court of Audit reportedly shows that the information that health insurance funds must disclose pursuant to the requirements set in the 2016 "Future Pact" (Toekomstpact), which mainly pertain to internal inspections and accountancy, is too fragmented and therefore of little use. The report also recommends granting inspection services access to all the available information concerning the funds, provided the privacy of the involved parties is respected. Yet, some Belgian political parties think that further steps must be taken and therefore suggest that the next governmental agreement implements a full transparency requirement by the health insurance funds.
