Indicator – Economy – Hospital debt balance decreased by 20 billion Hungarian forints

In August, Hungarian government hospital debt fell by about HUF 19 billion, from HUF 46 billion to about HUF 27 billion, according to the latest data from the Hungarian Treasury (MÁK), written by

This year, the overdue debt of public hospitals was significant: until the end of July, the average monthly growth exceeded 5 billion HUF.

By comparison, MÁK’s data for August is a huge surprise.

According to experts, 9 billion of the decrease of 19 billion belongs to the ownership of the institution of universities involved in curative and preventive care, and therefore the resulting debt has disappeared from the ranks of the state treasury.

It is already more than last year until November.

The amount allocated to institutions in August due to Covid is unknown, and we can only assume that there may be much more money than can be seen from the 10 billion reduction in debt. Experts estimate that hospitals could receive up to 25 billion additional funding. However, most of the additional expenditures were wage-type payments – emergency services, weekend vaccinations – so it didn’t even show up as a drop in state treasury data.

The remainder of the additional money received without a rating, in addition to wage payments, amounting to about ten billion dollars, would have been spent by organizations on overdrafts and payments to premium suppliers.
