Italy health cuts total 600 mln euros in 2013, 1 bln in 2014


(ANSA) - Rome, October 10 - Proposed budget cuts to Italy's
health-care system would total 600 million euros in 2013 and one
billion euros in 2014 as part of the government's so-called
Stability Law, Health Minister Renato Balduzzi told ANSA
"It's no small amount," he said.
The reduction in health spending reportedly caused Balduzzi
to threaten to resign at a cabinet meeting late Tuesday.
Balduzzi denied that the meeting had been bad-tempered, but
said he would continue to lobby for the cuts to be reviewed as
the bill goes through parliament.
"I will continue to present the reasons why plans should be
reconsidered," the minister said.
The stability law, said Balduzzi, "contains many
interesting elements, however the health-care system has already
undergone many cuts in recent years and generally provides good
results with lower spending than other European systems".
