The number of French-speaking Belgians putting off health care is growingWednesday, 24 April 2019 15:03
From the perspective of a sociological breakdown, the middle classes "are no longer resistant to a lack of the means to care for themselves," it underlined. For this section of the population, the increase in the number of people delaying their health care is somewhere between +6.8pp and +9.8pp.
According to the poll, 59.9% of single-parent families are affected (+10.8pp) and "The disparity with other types of family structure is enormous." That being said, it is people living alone without children who are putting off their health care the most (+24.1pp, today concerning 50.7% of such persons). The number of people already on benefit for work incapacity is not static: 61.1% of them had to put off at least one facet of their health care in 2018 (+2.7pp).
"It is urgent we reinvest in compulsory health insurance," Solidaris advocated. It is proposing the complete reimbursement of basic health care costs in the first place, the mandatory third-party payer having to pay for all care for the BIM and chronically sick, support for the development of medical facilities and the restoration of minimum benefits.
