The Health Secretariat of Sao Paulo today denied (11) that is no reservation bed at public hospitals managed by social organizations for users of health plans. By footnote, the court explained that the purpose of state law 1.131/10 is to allow the units to be compensated for providing care to patients enrolled providers.

Yesterday (10), the National Board of Health approved a resolution asking the Justice of São Paulo may consider illegal state law, approved by the Legislative Assembly of São Paulo and regulated by a decree signed by Governor Geraldo Alckmin in July last year. State law 1.131/10 reserves 25% of beds in public hospitals, operated by social organizations, the users of health plans.

It is important to clarify that the regulation of state law, and prohibit any preference or reservation of beds for patients of health plans, ensures the same quality to all patients in the provision of services and availability of equipment, accommodation and supplies, the statement said.

According to the secretary, there was no legal possibility of charging for this type of care, which ends up burdening the case of the Unified Health System (SUS) at about $ 500 million a year. Data of the institution indicate that about 20% of patients treated in these hospitals have some type of health plan.

The department believes that state law corrects this distortion, creating an additional source of funding for government hospitals and also promotes social justice, to ensure that the features of SUS will be applied in assisting the patients who depend, in fact, the public, concluded the note.

Next Tuesday (15), the Court of São Paulo (TJSP) will judge the merit of appeal by the government of Sao Paulo for the maintenance of law, the District Attorney challenged in court. In the first and second instances, judges have granted injunctions suspending the effects of the decree.

The decree says that authorities should not give preference to customers of private plans to the detriment of other users and provides that institutions must charge the compensation plans for the care of their policyholders to be invested in improving services and delivering the SUS system, observed guidelines established by the Department of Health.
