A scandalous blackmail shines on the horizon, that threatens the lives of millions of Greeks, especially the lives of long-term patients. Another blow is about to sweep away the last euro banknotes of millions of austerity-ridden Greeks. Greece’s pharmacists have decided to cut credits to insurance funds. As of 1.1.12 insured patients will have to pay prescription medicine by themselves. The Panhellenic Pharmacists’ Association (PFS) has decided to cut credits to insurance funds whether they owe them money or not. The pharmacists claim the insurance funds owe them some 400 million euro, that 800 pharmacies across the country are threatened with a padlock, while 200 have declared it is impossible to continue their operation.
And who should I sue for depriving of life-saving medicine a long-term sick family member?
