1. Are there proposals for reform or significant change to the healthcare system?
There is a new health law being discussed, which would change the underlying concepts behind the regulations, thereby making the healthcare system more protective.
2. When are they likely to come into force?
It is unlikely that the new law will be approved this year due to the political changes in the country, where the political party encouraging the adoption of the new law has lost its majority in Congress.
