The biochemists from Argentina will implement a copay for users of prepaid medicine exceeding $3,000 due to the delays in the increases in the rates that private health services financiers pay to providers. This bonus for clinical analyzes is added to those already paid by prepaid patients for other specialties.

COVER In September, it had already raised the possibility of stopping providing services for prepaid and social works, a drastic measure that was avoided thanks to the opening of negotiation and dialogue tables to solve the problem. But the problem remained with the prepaid ones, so they decided to charge a bonus for these users.

He copay of biochemists joins the other medical specialties that pay a particular fee to be treated with both prepaid and social benefits.
