Health Minister Breaks Up Me'uchedet HMO Board


Health Minister Yael German informed Chairman Yaniv Atzmon of the Me'uchedet Health Fund's board of directors, Sunday, that approval of the health fund's bylaws from July of 2013 had been cancelled following concern over a recurrence of failures included in the State Comptroller's report of 2010. The authority of the board of directors will go to a temporary board with a target date of July 1st for a new board.

German emphasized,  "The move was first and foremost to ensure the rights of more than one million fund members and to ensure good governance in managing the fund."
