DAILYKENN.com -- To efficiently manage the expense of translators, officials in Austria are allowing Islamic insurgents posing as refugees to be given healthcare priority over native Austrians.
Healthcare providers diagnose foreigners first.
Martin Gantner from the charity Caritas said asylum seekers were given priority in the same way that prisoners or people with disabilities are also prioritised.
He added that although many refugees were given a social insurance card, most of them failed to take it with them when they visited the doctor or a hospital, and that the language barrier meant it caused further delays.
Austrian Doctors’ Association spokeswoman Sarah Schernthaner said: “Without the card we don’t know if the person is just passing through or if they are an Austrian asylum seeker, and there is no chance of the costs being refunded without the card.”
Austria has been a member of the EU since the mid-1990s, and is bordered by the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Liechtenstein, Slovakia, Slovenia and Switzerland.
Some 90,000 immigrants took up a free health check as part of the asylum process last year, putting huge strains on health resources. — express.co.uk
