Estonia’s Health Insurance Fund works with a big loss

For 2016, the government budgeted a loss of around €9m. This gap in the fund’s finances would then have been covered using some of its reserves. But after the first half of the year, the fund is already running at a €33m loss, and about to become a factor in the bugdet discussions for next year.

This loss occurs despite the fact that the number of people insured by the fund has decreased by 15,392 and that revenue from social tax allocated to healthcare has grown by €12.6m, daily Postimees wrote on Friday.
