PostSubject: Potential medical problems after Brexit   Sun Dec 03, 2017 3:26 pm

In 2010 I discovered that I was born with only 1 kidney (at the age of 58) and the one kidney was working at 25% function at that time, as some of you will know that has not stopped me doing anything. Since then I am under a specialist renal unit near me that is looking after me very well,I go very 3-4 months for check ups. They are always very happy with my condition but sadly the kidney function is now down to 17%.
On my last visit the other day the doctor and I had an interesting conversation about my future trips to Bulgaria after Brexit. As some of you will know I go to Bulgaria twice a year and have been since 2004. When the kidney function drops to approx 12% If there is no donor available I will be put on Dialysis, there is a type of Dialysis that is fairly portable, which means at the moment I would be able to take the machine on the plane (it does not count against baggage allowance), and while there the fluid would be delivered to my address, this is an arrangement within the EU. What she suggested was look into the possibility of dual nationality for me, as she is not sure what the situation will be. I did not think that was an option but was wondering what you guys think.
I am aware that even our so called government have not got a clue as to what the ---- is going on so how the rest of us are supposed to know is anyones guess.

Hi, pleased to make your aquaintance.
As far as I know the Bulgarian rules on duel nationality only apply to Bulgarians, that is to say if you are Bulgarian dual nationality is accepted but if you are from any other country you must give up that nationality when applying for BG citizenship.

In respect of the health insurance, have you looked into the possibility of BG health insurance? This would be an additional cost and I don't know if it is allowed, I have BG health insurance which costs about 240lv pa.

Only a little info but I hope it helps.

Hi GeshiSimon,
thanks for the reply,
if I honest I always thought that duel nationality was a non started.
We have some close knowledgable Bulgarian friends coming over for Xmas, so we can discuss health insurance and the likes over the holiday period.

I get very confused with the Bulgarian Health insurance.  Our neighbours has health insurance like our (NHS) they have to pay for everything, for instance if they go to the hospital they have to pay 5lev a night and they have to pay for all their medication and anything they use from the hospital like bandages dressings etc. If they have operations they also have to pay towrds them.  One of the neighbours has to have a metal pin removed from her leg and the op will cost her 4000lev.  So if they have nationl health insurance why do they have to pay so much. Hence the confusion. We we stayed longer than a month in BG we bought private yearly insurance. When we say the heart specialist, with examination,consultation plus have all the tests include 3 sets of blood tests  and medication for a month cost us 80lev. A Bulgarian would probably pay more. For instance another neighbour has to have physcio every day for an hour and it cost them 20lev a day plus they have to buy the creams.

True VG. I just don't know how these people manage. Just seen this on Facebook

People working in the Bulgarian capital of Sofia earn on average double the remuneration paid to their counterparts in the towns of Vidin and Blagoevgrad.

This is shown by the figures of the National Statistical Institute (NSI) for the third quarter of the year, daily Trud informs.

During this period, the average wage was the highest in Sofia, where it stood at BGN 1193.

The lowest average wage was registered in Vidin – BGN 593, while the second lowest was recorded in Blagoevgrad – BGN 606.

Sofia is the only region in Bulgaria in which the average wage was above the average figure for the country, with the difference being 36.5 %.

Surprisingly, the second highest average wage was registered in one of the poorest regions of the country – Vratsa.

The average wage in Vratsa stood at BGN 871, which was largely due to the high remunerations paid at the only nuclear power plant in the country, which is located near the town of Kozloduy.

In the regions of Stara Zagora, Sofia province and Varna, workers earned on average more than BGN 800.

Compared to the same quarter of last year, the largest wage increase was registered in the city of Pernik – 11.7 %, while the rise in Sofia amounted to 11.5 %.

The opposite trend was recorded in the regions of Smolyan, Kardzhali and Silistra, where wages decreased compared to last year.

In the regions of Ruse, Varna and Pazardzhik wages increased by 2-3 %, while in Yambol, Pleven and Shumen the rise was between 9 % and 11 %.

The highest remunerations were earned in the sector “Creation and distribution of information”, with the average wage being BGN 2037. This represented an increase of 13.3 % compared to last year due to the competition for qualified IT cadres.
