The National Health Security Workplace (NHSO) has made a decision to revoke its agreements with nine private hospitals in Bangkok because they allegedly filed fake claims for repayments for their services under the universal healthcare scheme.

NHSO spokesman Athaporn Limpanylers mentioned the nine hospitals are Mahesak, Bang Na General one, Prachapat, Navaminthra, Petcharavej, Kluaynamthai 2, Phaetpanya, Bangmod and Kluaynamthai.

Dr Athaporn said the NHSO board as well as a sub-committee in charge of the particular universal healthcare plan in Bangkok resolved to file a police complaint against the 9 hospitals, revoke the particular contracts for them to supply healthcare services underneath the scheme and remember the money which had been paid to them.

The resolution was made after a fact-finding committee found solid evidence that this nine hospitals got made false demands for reimbursements for the costs of comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP) tests.

“The NHSO has prepared measures in order to help  people who might be affected by the revocation of the contracts. So people who have registered designed for services from the nine hospitals need not be concerned, ” Dr Athaporn said.
