Juarez City. – The federal government has ruled out making changes in medical care for populations without rights at this border with the transfer of resources and functions from the Institute of Health for Well-Being (Insabi) to the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS)-Welfare. Yesterday, Chihuahua Department of Welfare delegate Juan Carlos Loera de la Rosa said the relocation does not mean that Social Security “opens the doors” of its facilities to those who lack medical coverage, but rather that it will continue to serve the infrastructure that the state government manages with federal resources. .
“It’s separate, one thing is normal IMSS, the population that’s open there won’t be served unless there’s some agreement and the federal government pays for IMSS (…) but that doesn’t mean the doors to Social Security are already opened and offices and family medicine units for all population, and now you add 200 thousand to the accrual,” Luara said.
He added, “The question is where will they go to the open public, because they are there, in hospitals (of the state, with money that came from my insabi).”
Businessmen of the entity have warned in recent days of a possible overload in IMSS before the amendment adopted in the legislature, with which the resources and functions of Insabi – serving the population without rights – will be integrated into the IMSS-well – an existence that depends on the central management of the institute, responsible About Zoé Robledo.
“It doesn’t help anyone, because neither those who pay nor those who don’t will get dignified care,” said Sergio Mendoza, head of the state’s economic development group.
“From the point of view of the national Coparmex, there is a lot of concern, because from the very beginning the quality of the social security service has deteriorated greatly, and simply with the provision of prescriptions, which was close to two or three percent, it has risen to 10, 12 percent without filling ( …) That is, with the current entitlement to Social Security, imagine all this burden they would add in. I think Social Security does not have the capacity, said Mario Cepeda, leader in Juarez of the Federation of Employers of the Republic of Mexico, on Friday.
In this regard, Loera de la Rosa said that although Imss-bienestar is dependent on the Directorate General of IMSS at the central level, it has different federal resources than those of tripartite origin with which labor rights are taken care of – which include worker quotas And the bosses.
Data from the Así estamos Juárez study indicates that, as of 2020, there were 268,154 people without rights on these borders, while IMSS serves 1.2 million affiliates.
