The paper addresses past experiences of the health insurance issue and attempts to identify similarities and differences with the system presented by the new law. The study also introduces an analytical vision of significant problems related to the law, namely the problem of the project philosophy, the legislative framework and the reference of its legal framework in light of the 2014 Constitution; the problem of funding and diversity of sources of income; the problem of social justice; the problem of implementation; and the problem of the relationship between the public and private sectors in the health sector.
