The largest budget so far allocated to the IMSS-Wellness Health program is for Veracruz, with 5 thousand 57 million 439 thousand pesos.
The program, which will begin to be implemented this November in the state of Veracruz, will provide medical care to people who do not have social security.
In this regard, Zoé Robledo Aburto, general director of the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS), indicated that, together with the entity, Campeche and Guerrero will enter this month, not only to provide medical care, but also to allocate resources to hospital infrastructure. .
“There are four items; the first level infrastructure, the second level infrastructure, that is, the rehabilitation of hospitals and first level units, health centers.
“And also the equipment and instruments in both the first and second level of care,” he said during the morning conference this Tuesday from the National Palace.
Robledo Aburto specified that 11 thousand 958 million pesos are being invested in 12 states that this year will already have said service model.
Before Veracruz, the states of Nayarit, Colima, Tlaxcala, Sonora, Baja California Sur and Sinaloa entered the program.
As of this month it will be extended to Campeche, Veracruz and Guerrero, while Morelos, Michoacán and Oaxaca will be established in the same in December.
“It is for the coverage of almost 12 million Mexicans who in these 12 states do not have social security and it is directly in medical care that is the most urgent,” he said.
He asserted that Until now, part of the results that the program has produced in the states that have already been implemented is reflected in the filling of prescriptions, where there is greater control both in the storage and in the purchase of the necessary medicines.
He said that this allows better tracking of the need for drugs in each entity, indicating that the filled prescriptions have even reached 99 percent of the beneficiaries, which guarantees that the drugs reach people “not stay in the warehouse” .
