Internet consultation Participation Act in Balance –

Editorial Medicalfacts/ Janine Budding 22 May 2023 – 06:11

Not the rules, but putting people first. That is the starting point of the Participation Act in Balance bill. This bill will be open for internet consultation to all interested parties from midnight. Until 28 June they can provide their input for further improvement.

Last year, Minister Schouten for Poverty Reduction, Participation and Pensions presented both the policy plan Participation Act in Balance [Bron: Menselijke maat voorop bij bijstandsverlening] as the further elaboration of the said measures.

With this, the government wants to take concrete steps to put people first and not the rules, thereby removing experienced hardships. The aim is to increase legal certainty for people entitled to social assistance and to give professionals sufficient scope to help them with this. We worked on this with municipalities, other professionals from the profession and, of course, people entitled to social assistance themselves. The bill offers a cohesive package of more than twenty measures and is now open for consultation.

Human size, trust and simplicity

These measures include more room to provide informal care without consequences for the benefit. When someone temporarily lives with the person in need of care due to intensive informal care, he retains his own right to assistance in that temporary situation. In addition, people entitled to social assistance will soon be able to receive up to € 1,200 in gifts without having to declare this and they will be allowed to keep extra earnings of up to 15% as a stepping stone to work.

Anyone who finds work, but has greater fluctuations in their income, can claim a budget from a new buffer budget to be formed. Large blows are thus absorbed for more certainty. It will also be possible to offer retroactive assistance on an individual basis and there will be more scope for customization where the four-week search term is concerned for young people.

If someone demonstrably lives temporarily with a person entitled to social assistance, the cost-sharing standard does not yet apply.

Practical adjustments have also been included. For example, it will be possible to establish identity on the basis of a driver’s license instead of just a passport or ID card when applying for assistance, and the settlement of holiday pay with assistance will be simplified. All proposals are aimed at human size, trust and simplicity.

These and all other proposals can be found in the Bill Participation Act in Balance. This can be consulted from midnight until June 28. Subsequently, the input received will be used to prepare a bill that will enter into force on 1 January 2025.

I have specialized in interactive news for healthcare providers, so that healthcare providers are informed every day about the news that may be relevant to them. Both lay news and news specifically for healthcare providers and prescribers. Social Media, Womens Health, Patient advocacy, patient empowerment, personalized medicine & Care 2.0 and the social domain are spearheads for me to pay extra attention to.

I studied physiotherapy and Health Care business administration. I am also a registered independent client support worker and informal care broker. I have a lot of experience in various positions in healthcare, the social domain and the medical, pharmaceutical industry, nationally and internationally. And have broad medical knowledge of most healthcare specialties. And of the care laws from which the care is regulated and financed. Every year I attend most of the leading medical conferences in Europe and America to keep my knowledge up-to-date and to keep up with the latest developments and innovations.
