4. Paying for services

Adequate funding for health is important to manage the excess demands on the health system. This section considers how countries are PAYING FOR COVID-19 SERVICES. Health financing describes how much is spent on health and the distribution of health spending across different service areas. The section also describes who is covered for COVID-19 testing and treatment, whether there are any notable gaps (in population coverage and service coverage), and how much people pay (if at all) for those services out-of-pocket.

4.1 Health financing

The health crisis has led to a budget deficit of 477 million euros for the Principality. In order to finance health, economic and social measures, the Government had adopted a budget law containing an anticipated amending budget (Act No. 1487 of 23 April 2020) and eventually used the Constitutional Reserve Fund, created to remedy exceptional crisis situations.
