According to the spread information, the unregulated insurance system was a factor in the woman’s untimely death.
The woman lived in Samtredia and IC group covered her insurance, though as IC Group insurance is not valid in Samtredia, she was hospitalized to Kutaisi. Due to the vague causes, she was taken to Khoni hospital from Kutaisi, where the IC Group insurance works. When they arrived in Khoni, it turned out the hospital didn’t have an anesthesiologist and they decided to bring the doctor from Martvili.
The 27-year-old woman died before the anesthesiologist arrived in Khoni. The doctors managed to save the child.
The Minister of Healthcare and the Insurance Company has not commented yet.
