Spanish to English translations [PRO]
Medical - Medical: Health Care / Health system reform - Colombia
Spanish term or phrase: venta de servicios a pólizas y medicina prepagada
The document is about stakeholders adjusting to the changes introduced in 1993 under the new Health System in Colombia. I'm not entirely sure what they mean by this phrase, and I'm not sure of the scope of "venta". I thought of: 'sale of policy services and prepaid medical services'. I hope someone can do better!

Los [actores] que tuvieron que adecuar su forma de operación al nuevo Sistema fueron:
- Las clínicas y hospitales (Instituciones Prestadoras de Servicios – IPS) las cuales venían de un modelo en el cual dependían principalmente del pago privado o de la **venta de servicios a pólizas y medicina prepagada**. En el caso de los hospitales públicos, su transformación a Empresas Sociales del Estado los llevó a dejar de depender de un presupuesto histórico para pasar a vender servicios en una red y hacer contratos de prestación de servicios para financiar su operación.
- Los profesionales de la salud que dependían principalmente del pago de bolsillo del paciente.

sale services of policies and prepaid medical care


Explanation:
Hi Muriel. I like your answer to a degree, although it is not really policy services, but just polcies.

I not it does not said "care" anywhere in Spanish, but I believe it is what is meant, since if we leave it "medicine" many would interpret it as "medicamentos"

well, I am stuck to on the phrase "venta de servicios A pólizas", especially as I can find no other instances of this on the web.

The clinics and hospitals...... depended mainly on private payment/s or the sales of policy and medical care services

this is how I read it


dependían principalmente del pago privado o de la **
