Petro Takes Action Against Colombian Insurer Amid Health Reform Delays

Leftist Government Intervenes in Major Private Insurer EPS Sanitas Amidst Health Reform Resistance

As President Gustavo Petro’s government faces challenges in overhauling Colombia’s health system, they have taken steps to gain control over one of the country’s largest private insurers. The health superintendent recently announced plans to intervene in EPS Sanitas, a major insurer with 5.7 million users that is part of the Keralty SAS health group. This move comes as President Petro faces resistance in Congress and other institutions to his efforts to transform Colombia’s conservative economic model.

Health Minister Guillermo Alonso Jaramillo and other officials have voiced concerns about the practices of some insurance companies, highlighting the need for reform. With private health insurance workers protesting the proposed changes in Bogota, the government is facing pushback from the industry. As President Petro navigates opposition to his reform agenda, the intervention in EPS Sanitas underscores the challenges his government faces in enacting significant changes.

The move to assert control over a major private insurer signals the administration’s commitment to improving the health system despite obstacles. With ongoing debates and protests surrounding healthcare reforms, the road ahead for President Petro’s government remains uncertain. However, this strategic escalation by leftist leader shows their determination to implement their health system reforms and improve healthcare access for all Colombians.
