Under the decision of Defence Minister, those citizens who owe money to the Military Hospital due to various services since 2009 will be written off.
According to Minister`s initiative, the citizens who have the older debt (three or more years) to a Military Hospital, will be written off 1 million 1000 GEL. The number of such citizens is around 1000 people.
As it is already known, the Hospital provides free medical services to the military servicemen, while it offers paid medical services to the citizens from the day of its establishment.
The Military Hospital is equipped with modern equipment and provides a high quality of service, therefore, citizens often turn to the medical establishment for medical services.
Clearly, these services require some financial provision and the Hospital receives income from the patients. Since 2009, a certain number of citizens who received medical services there have been written off their debts to the Hospital.
