Delivered medical entities, on Friday (26), the National Health Agency (ANS) a document charging more transparency in data on healthcare coverage health plans in the country. According to the Federal Council of Medicine (CFM), the more detailed numbers may help patients and professionals to decide for adherence to plans.

The category seeks the disclosure of information as to the amount and geographical distribution of hospital beds and intensive care units (ICUs), laboratories and doctors available. The idea, according to the CFM, is to prove the imbalance between demand growth in the industry and service offerings.

Doctors also gave the NSA a series of reports, surveys and studies that suggest an impending crisis in the health insurance. The document, signed by CFM, the Brazilian Medical Association (AMA) and the National Federation of Physicians (Fenam), is an offshoot of the claims that led to the suspension of services to health plans in several states over the past 15 days.

For medical leaders, with the only public access to detailed information sector will avoid excesses committed by some businessmen, ensuring, in particular, the functioning of the health care market in the country, said the CFM in a statement.

The medical authorities estimate that economic stability and increased purchasing power of the population have generated a significant increase in the volume of customers plans and health insurance, but the care networks (list of insured physicians, laboratories and available beds) have not followed this evolution .
