Health policy reform in tough times: The case of Portugal

Pedro Barros ()

Health Policy, 2012, vol. 106, issue 1, 17-22

Abstract: The financial rescue plan for the Portuguese economy details a number of adjustments to be made in the National Health Service. We review the changes on user charges. The requirement of the rescue plan on user charges is twofold: structure of user charges and the levels of user charges. Adoption of measures occurred within the timeframe required.
