The unemployed, uninsured, and the poor, who need health care and are lost in the bureaucracy of a National Health System, resort to health centers in order to see a doctor, Greek Alternate Health Minister Andreas Xanthos said on Thursday.

According to Xanthos, around 2.5-3.0 million people are excluded from the health system. Fortunately, a network of health centers has been operating since the beginning of the crisis to help these people, the minister noted.

Xanthos explained to ANA-MPA that the Health ministry has drafted a set of proposals to provide uninsured people with health coverage, which will soon be put to public consultation.
