Question for written answer E-014760-15
to the Commission
Rule 130
Fernando Maura Barandiarán (ALDE) , Juan Carlos Girauta Vidal (ALDE)

 Subject:  Health reform and Royal Decree-Law 16/2012
 Answer in writing 

Three years after the entry into force of Royal Decree-Law 16/2012 on the reform of Spain's health system, more than 748 000 people do not have a national health card and have been excluded from the national health system. In addition, a lack of information and patchy implementation of the reform in various autonomous communities has caused major administrative chaos, with international organisations confirming that some centres are charging for emergency treatment or are refusing people access to healthcare even though they are covered by law.

Does the Commission believe this reform to be in line with the EU's health strategy?

What support measures could be considered to improve citizens' health and address inequalities in healthcare in the light of Regulation (EU) No 282/2014 on the establishment of a third Programme for the Union's action in the field of health (2014-2020)?
