President Piñera stated that “these facilities aim at the comprehensive modernization of Compin, by the health authorities, to manage the procedures with love, dignity and speed.” He added that “the Compin Moneda was intervened where more than 27,000 medical licenses were resolved and this modernization is intended to ensure that licenses are paid on time.” For his part, Minister Mañalich noted that “we have implemented, at the national level, a very sophisticated system for resolving medical licensing procedures and also adequate training to perform friendly and dignified care”. The Minsal intervened those offices that had delays in the authorizations of medical licenses, as in the case of Santiago, Iquique, Antofagasta, Talca and Concepción. Undersecretary Daza explained in Santiago’s case “100% of the outstanding medical licenses were resolved.” 75% were authorized to pay the subsidy, 16% were medically authorized, but without the right to receive payment for lack of history to complete the process, and 9% were rejected.
