The Czech Doctors' Chamber on Tuesday rejected Health Minister Tomas Julinek's health reform package saying that it did not address existing problems and would harm both patients and doctors. The package was criticized as being "cost-saving oriented" and doctors slammed the idea of having to collect fees from patients themselves. The chamber also criticized the fact that the state did not plan to increase health insurance payments for children, pensioners and the unemployed in the next two years.
