The anti-corruption Commission of the Seimas turned to the Service of special investigations (SSR) with a request to check the information about granting privileges to politicians in health care institutions. It is reported by Sputnik Lithuania with reference to the press service of the Seimas.

According to the Deputy Agne Biotite, in the Zalgiris clinic of Vilnius University is possible, «thanking» politicians for favorable solutions for both the clinic and private agencies providing dental services, which belongs to the spouse of the head of the clinic Zalgiris Alina Puriene.

«It turns out that for dental treatment, implants and other medical services, may have received small services from politicians and other agencies. For example, nobody touched that the institution itself is the wife of Professor conducts some exercises for the staff Zalgiris, although she is their leader in the hospital Zalgiris», — says Biotite.

As the Deputy told, private dental clinic operating without a license, doctors in the clinic Zalgiris may have to make to patient cards, fake data about the health to get another diagnosis and was able to get more money.

The politician admitted that the usual practice in this case should apply to the Ministry of health, but the situation here is not simple.

«The medical services Minister of health Purine assisted in the establishment of her husband. However, settled whether the Minister for services received or got their «big» discount, should establish the investigation,» said Bilocate.

According to policy, a specific case in the clinic Zalgiris confirmed the existence of a systemic problem: medical records are often falsified to obtain benefits for the companies, which expect greater income and undue increase in turnover of medical companies.
