Abolish your own risk seems significantly more expensive than budgeted
The costs for the possible abolition of the own risk in the care will be substantially higher than previously budgeted: none 3.7 billion but € 4.5 billion. This is evident from calculations of the Central Planning bureau (CPB).
The higher costs have to do with the higher spending per person and the increase of the number of insured persons. Also it would be your own risk in the coming years to increase to 450 euros per person in 2021, whereas the figure is now 385 euros.
The own risk in the upcoming elections have a role. So want to SP, GroenLinks and 50PLUS own risk. Also PvdA and CDA want to think about the abolition or reduction of the equity risk.
The PVV party proposed Monday for the own risk of the next year with 100 euro to decrease from 385 to 285 euro.
