After the Health Insurance Bill has been passed to the Parliament for voting, the controversial obligation for payment of all health insurance contributions upon selling a property was waived. After discussions in the Bulgarian Parliament, the MPs voted against the suggested amendment. Most of them considered it as unconstitutional and as restraining the right of private property (e.g. freedom of disposing property).
This amendment was suggested by the Ministry of Health as a measure for collection of the unpaid national health insurance contributions. The idea behind this suggestions was to increase the collection of health insurance contributions. However this would have burden the property deals with additional bureaucracy and wasted time for obtaining documents from NRA.
