Aloisio Tibiriçá Miranda, vice president of the Federal Council of Medicine

Doctors across the country will suspend patient care health plan for a period of 15 days. The protest, in most states, is expected to start next Wednesday (10).

This is the fourth strike announced by the category in two years. According to the Federal Council of Medicine (CFM) will be suspended and elective surgery appointments only urgent and emergency services will not be affected.

Seven federal units announced the suspension of service to all private healthcare companies in the country. In eight states, the protest will only achieve local plan operators. There are still seven states that will hold meetings to set plans to be achieved.

Besides the adjustment of fees for consultations and other procedures, the list of demands includes insertion in the contract, the adjustment criteria, and with indexes defined periodicity and the end of the intervention plans into doctor-patient relationship.

According to the vice president of the board, Aloisio Tibiriçá revenues from health plans in Brazil grow on average 14% per year, but the adjustment is not passed to doctors. According to him, the amount paid per consultation has come to represent 40% of spending by carriers, but is currently between 14% and 18%.

Defasou very well and is very short of the need for survival in the doctor's office, said. We live in a permanent conflict with health plans. The nearly 50 million users are in a bottleneck of medical care. The plans do not accredit more services or more doctors for cost containment, completed.

Data from the National Health Agency (ANS) indicate that between 2003 and 2011, revenue grew 192% from operators, while the average amount paid per visit increased 65%. Calculations own category, however, indicate that the increase was 50%.

The ANS has suspended some more plans because of the waiting time. Emergencies are overcrowded, almost equal to the Unified Health System (SUS). The supplementary health insurance market does not attract more physicians, they are leaving. The situation will worsen, said Tibiriçá.

For the vice president of the Brazilian Medical Association (AMB), Lairson Vilar, operators have boycotted high cost treatments, reducing hospitalization periods and difficult exams more expensive. According to him, in Sao Paulo study indicates that two out of ten users of health plans have sought the public service in lieu of accredited clinics. It is impossible to offer a quality service in the face of so great an imbalance, he said.
