Hi Trajo,

Thanks for the explaination, so can we take it that the business on this link has now ceased trading.

She did not write that her company / service has either ceased trading or that she is now not an agent or intermediary with a financial interest.

However, trajo is offering to possibly put forward suggestions and discuss concerns foreigners residing in BG have regarding healthcare. She has already set up meetings and would be in a position to discuss these issues without charge or fee. We can't see a problem with this, so unless trajo starts asking for a fee to put forward your combined issues we feel there is no need to question her regarding her usual commercial service.

Thanks. Mod 8)

I ran a health service for expats and many of my clients had problems or issues with the health service here.


How stupid of me to interpret that as meaning she did not run it any more.

Seems to me there's a communication problem somewhere. People with commercial interests lobby government all the time, that's how UK runs. But interests should be disclosed.

Here's some feedback from a Bulgarian woman about her father, who was insured.

The woman in the photo, though pretty, is not the ministerial candidate. She's the author. The candidate is here. She's an expert in hormones.

There are virtually no nurses in Bulgarian hospitals. That's an obvious problem. No minister of health either.

I have personally met Tracy (Trajo) recently and her partner John when she helped me to visit an English speaking Doctor in Bourgas.

I personally cannot see what she might get out of all this hard work running backwards and forwards to Sofia trying to get answers and rulings from a confused Bulgaria in a big European Union.

However, if she can find some level playing field, achieve some EU ruling as to the entitlement and/or rights of EU Citizens and their spouses to receive healthcare 'anywhere' within the EU then, she has my vote.

At the moment we are NOWHERE and GOING NOWHERE fast. It is time to at least get some Nationwide rules within Bulgaria as a first step. I was lucky this last time that all I needed was a course of tablets, but one of the possibilities of the causes of my problem was a brain tumour. Where do I go to get that sorted then when I'm not entitled to free UK or BG treatment? Just suffer it till I pull the trigger or what!

Someone has to fly the flag, coordinate the effort unless we are all going to march on the Bulgarian Parliament with our placards held high which is another option.

Anybody selling private medical insurance plans might be thought to have a clear interest in getting a flat "no" from from the head honcho at the NHIF. I am not insinuating anything against Trajo, I haven't seen her offering this product recently and it may be that it's the only solution for some, but the expat community isn't likely to get more than one shot at putting its case, whatever that may be.

Wouldn't it be better for a representative group, maybe made up of Mybulgaria Forum members, to make an approach on behalf of the resident and intending resident British community, maybe incorporating Trajo and her expertise? I would have thought that a series of agreed questions could be submitted in advance of any meeting, any discussions minuted and the whole thing reported back openly. The newspaper chap might be of some help also. Just a suggestion.

You can check online (in Bulgarian) to see if you have missing health insurance contributions. This is where doctors check to see if you are up to date. You need a LCN or EGN no. Mine is the same as my old Lichna card before the changes to the plastic ones. Link is below
https://inetdec.nra.bg/pls/pub/home.htm ... tatus.home or https://inetdec.nra.bg/index.html then follow link in Bulgarian.
