From Brazil in fact – Disappeared on Monday (11) by the Brazilian government, "compulsory vehicle insurance", DVATAT, was responsible for providing the Unified Health System (SUS) more than $ 30 billion for just over a decade.
The DPVAT regulation states that 45% of the funds raised with it are distributed annually to the SCS. In 2018 alone, $ 2 billion was handed over.
Aristotle Cardona, a family doctor and professor at the Federal University of Sao Francisco Valley (Univasf), explains that despite Brazil's large health budget, DVAT's money may be lacking, as there are increased financial constraints in the area. One is the change in the spending ceiling, which has frozen investment in the sector for 20 years.
"In ten years, from 2008 to 2018, it was more than $ 33 billion. Significant amount entered directly. If we start from the point of view that the system is stifled, under-funded, it becomes a significant sum, "he says.
Cardona foresees a "chain reaction" that could "increase the impact" of the measure. In addition to the end of direct transfers, the extinction of insurance is likely to lead to more people seeking insurance in the event of an accident.
Related to government-suspended electronic radar, the extinction of DPVAT funds, which is also used in prevention campaigns, can contribute to an increase in accidents.
Tatiana Gould, 33, received DPVAT ten years ago. At the time, I didn't even know there was insurance. Due to injuries, part of his treatment, including surgery, was done by SUS. She thinks the liability insurance is "essential", remembering that those injured without formal employment can spend long periods without income.
"I broke my arm, I had to put a needle. In the other car, which crashed into us, the driver died. The family received DPVAT. The boy was a family giver, coming home from work at night. They were running away from income, ”he said.
The measure is considered revenge
Brasilia sees the motivation of the Boulsonaro Air Force (PSL) decision, at least in part, in retaliation against Luciano Bivar, federal PSL deputy and head of the title. The two became dissatisfied after disputes over party control.
Bivar is a partner of Excelsior, one of the insurance companies that make up the DPVAT administration. None of them commented on the issue publicly.
