AmCham Kosovo welcomes the decision to postpone collection of health insurance premiums

Prishtina, June 30, 2017 – American Chamber of Commerce in Kosovo welcomes today’s decision of Government of Republic of Kosovo to postpone the collection of health insurance premiums and as a result implementation of Law on Health Insurance.

AmCham Kosovo considers that the eventual collection of health insurance premiums without fulfillment of the necessary criteria would be in violation of the law provisions and would create confusion among the business community.

AmCham urges on the Government and other relevant institutions to use the following period to complete all the necessary preparations for the implementation of this important law of citizens of Republic of Kosovo. In addition, AmCham calls on the Government and the Assembly to consider concerns and recommendations of stakeholders throughout the process of amendment of the abovementioned law, in compliance with 2017 Legislative Agenda.
