PFEARFU: No to the Unequal Reimbursement of Health Care Expenses for the Military
The Panhellenic Federation of Armed Forces Unions (PFEARFU) taking into account a relevant document of the Military Union of the Regional Unit of Achaia, returns to its standing request for the modification of the compensation procedure for the personnel of the Armed Forces regarding the health care costs of both themselves and their family members. It is essential to reduce the – unacceptable – waiting times and to adjust the entitled compensation amounts to the costs.
To provide an example the financial expenditure for conducting occupational therapy sessions for the children of military personnel amounts to a compensation of €1.23 per session. This compensation is often subject to a 20% participation and hence the amount falls to 0.98 € per session.
In addition to the above, it is also important to mention that the repayment of health expenses may take up to six months after the submission of the necessary documents.
