The 17 members of the ADSE General and Supervisory Board (composed of representatives from
employees, pensioners and the government) approved this Thursday
unanimously an opinion showing the forecasts of revenue and expenditure for 2019
proposed by the management of the body and requests for a revision of the values.

the GSB, the revenues are expected to be practically in line with

adequately reflect the increase in pensions and wages (due to the thawing of
of careers that started in January and will continue in the course of 2019).

The GSB also considers that the budget of the DGEM should be "excluded from the annual budgetary procedure provided for in the State budget", since the source of its funds is private (discounts from the beneficiaries), "and the amounts for which the rebates are made ".
The CGS also regrets that the framework guidelines for the preparation of the budget were not accompanied by an action plan and that they also failed to take into account the consequences of the extension of the ADSE for new beneficiaries, in particular those who resigned, individual contracts from those who have missed the deadline in the past had to join the public health system. In total, it is estimated that this expansion will bring 64 thousand new beneficiaries to the ADSE.
ADSE sent the government a proposal for the extension at the end of May, but it has not yet received any reaction about when and how the change comes into practice. In response to Dinheiro Vivo, an official source from the Ministry of Health said that "studies are currently being prepared to analyze the consequences of the expansion of ADSE beneficiaries".
