Police get health insurance
Santo Domingo.- As of next month all members of the National Police will be affiliated to the Contributory Regime and will receive health services covered by the National Health Insurance (SeNaSa), by paying only 3% of their salary.
At present only 3,000 of the 32,000 members of the National Police have health coverage, so this will enable all of them to obtain these benefits from 6,000 health providers.
This will cost the government some RD$20 million per month for 100% coverage of services, according to Health Minister Altagracia Guzmán Marcelino, who was speaking at a meeting with the press and citizens at the National Palace, accompanied by SeNaSa executive director Chanel Rosa Chupany and the director general of the National Health Service, Ramón Alvarado Mendoza.
Guzmán Marcelino said that the health system had made great strides, highlighting the addition of four million people to the contributory regime and another 813,000 to the subsidized regime.
