In the case of health funds, by the end of the first half of 2022, the number of members exceeded 964,000, and membership fees exceeded HUF 22 bln, which means an increase of 2.91% and 16.59% compared to the same period last year.
All the sector's expertise will be needed to maintain further growth and the trust of current members, as well as cooperation with legislators and employers, ÖPOSZ said at its annual convention.
