Polish lobbyists call for private insurance

The Polish Insurance Chamber is calling for private insurance that would compete with their government programs. They say, "The PIU assumes the cost of the additional health insurance would be around zł.50 per month. Assuming a take-up of 15%, this would mean an extra zł.3.5 billion for the Polish healthcare system."

If the system is underfunded, wouldn't an increase in taxes do that more efficiently?
