The Platense Medical Association declared itself on alert and, once again, the conflict with the Institute of Medical Assistance Work (IOMA) escalated.
From the entity that represents doctors they argue that more than 20 days ago they requested a meeting to update fees and incorporate new doctors to the registry, among other claims. “However, there was no response from the Institute,” they said in a statement.
“Faced with the lack of response by the IOMA to the repeated requests for a meeting of doctors in the city to discuss urgent issues, such as updating fees and the unilateral refusal by the Institute to incorporate it into the registry of this social work new professionals, the Platense Medical Association declares itself in a state of alert “, they pointed out.
Again they pointed him to the leadership of the IOMA. “The concern and discomfort grow because more than 20 days ago the WAP requested a dialogue table with the President of the social work of the Province of Buenos Aires, Homero Giles. However, there was nothing but indifference despite repeated attempts of the Association for channeling different situations that complicate health care for members and affiliates and medical work “.
On the other hand, among the arguments they added that “unjustified debts continue. Every month the IOMA debits benefits already made, delaying the collection by the professionals who performed them by up to two months. The Institute unjustifiably debits fees because it does not recognize the change of category of the doctors and, therefore, pays amounts lower than those that correspond in an unconsulted and unilateral way “.
“These situations that are listed are just some of those that require urgent attention and management by the IOMA. From the AMP it is considered that these situations can only be addressed and channeled towards a good port if the necessary measures are available from the provincial State. to solve problems that affect both professionals and patients. Unionized doctors remain on the alert. “
