Vasile Ciurchea, President of the National Health Insurance Fund (CNAS), has filed his resignation, stating that he resigns for personal reasons. “I have just filed my resignation at the Government. I thank all of my collaborators, regardless of the relation we had, better or less so. I believe in the projects I supported and, if I were to go back in time, I would surely do the same thing all over again. There is the need for a health card, the hepatitis C patients in the fourth stage of the illness have treatment, and the paediatric oncology programme was a must,” Ciurchea said for news.ro.
Likewise, he stated for Realitatea TV that he filed his resignation and his reasons are personal. “A few minutes ago I left the Government. I filed my resignation, it’s a unilateral decision, there were no pressures. I’ve simply had enough. I can no longer take so much vilification. I don’t know what I’ll do next,” he said.
Vasile Ciurchea was appointed President of CNAS in June 2014, through a decision taken by the Victor Ponta Government. The appointment decision pointed out that Vasile Ciurchea will be member of CNAS’s Board until his term expires on 17 June 2017 and will also be president of CNAS.
Ciurchea was President of CNAS before too, from February 2007 to January 2009 when he was replaced by Irinel Popescu, following a decision taken by Premier Emil Boc.
