Georgiev, Todorov & Co has successfully represented Uni Hospital in a claim against the National Health Insurance Fund for payment of over-the-limit medical activities.

According to Georgiev, Todorov & Co, the “Uni Hospital General Medical Treatment Facility is one of the largest private investments in Bulgarian healthcare for the past 25 years. The hospital is located in Panagyurishte and offers precision by established specialists, unique medical care, and state-of-the-art medical equipment.” According to the firm, the case concerned the “payment for hospital care services provided on clinical paths to health-insured persons above the limits set by the NHIF for the period between February 1, 2017, and September 30, 2018, for an overall amount of over BGN 2 million including statutory interest.”

The Sofia City Court first decided in favor of Uni Hospital in 2020, and the Appellate Court confirmed this decision in July of 2021. According to Georgiev, Todorov & Co, “therefore, the court ordered the NHIF to pay the healthcare establishment the due remuneration for hospital medical care provided on clinical paths, medical, and ambulatory procedures over the monetary limit set for the period above, along with the statutory interest until the final payment of the amount. The hospital will be able to claim all other expenses related to the claim.”

Georgiev, Todorov & Co’s team included Lawyers Maria Derelieva and Margarita Ivanova.
