The expenses of the Health Insurance Fund (Haigekassa) in 2016 were 4 percent greater than budgeted, amounting to €29 million.

The size of the 2016 budget of the Health Insurance Fund was €1.1 billion, and expenditures amounted to 104 percent of the budget, CEO of the fund, Tanel Ross, said at a press briefing on Monday.

Expenditures for general medical care reached €103 million, those for specialist medical care €590 million. The number of cases of specialist medical care financed by the fund was 3.3 million.

Inpatient nursing care was provided to 8,045 people, and home nursing care to a similar number. Compensation for medical equipment cost the fund €70.5 million last year.

A total of €132 million was spent to compensate buyers of prescription drugs, with compensations paid on 8 million prescriptions. The fund also compensated people for six million sick days, spending €10 million on that.

The fund’s average spending per insured person grew by 7 percent in comparison to 2016, Ross added.
