A few days ago ANDA announced that for one year medical services will be suspended for the beneficiaries of active members and fees, due to the crisis they are going through.
To better explain this situation, Marco Treviño, ANDA’s general secretary, shared with De Primera Mano that this decision was made through a general assembly, since the expenses of the Association are not being proportional to the profits it is generating.

In addition to this, since 2013 there is a debt per year of 23 million pesos due to social security.
“The problem we are experiencing requires a call for help, ANDA needs help. The cost of medical services in general has grown disproportionately with inflation and wages”
Treviño said that it has been a drastic decision and that it has been difficult for some members to understand it, but the Association needs understanding, as this is necessary for ANDA to continue its activities.

Despite the fact that the service for beneficiaries was suspended as of April 29, Treviño explained that for beneficiaries who still have health problems and must continue to attend medical check-ups, the service will continue to be free, but only until they are discharged.

In addition, he emphasized that active and honorary members will still have medical coverage.
Regarding the problems that the Casa del Actor has had due to the economic problems they face, he assured that ANDA continues to take charge of the asylum and, even, they gave a contribution last December.
The accusations of diversion of resources began when Jesús Ochoa was at the head of ANDA (Facebook/National Association of Actors).
Treviño also took the opportunity to deny that there was a diversion of resources from the Association, as they have repeatedly accused from the Casa del Actor.

“There is no such thing and in fact we have informed very clearly and I invite anyone who has doubts to come and we will give them all the necessary information,” the actor concluded.
It should be remembered that since 2019 ANDA and the Casa del Actor have been in conflict since the asylum has not obtained the necessary money to cover all the services it offers.
At the time, there were strong discussions between the actors over the accusations that were made (Instagram @jesusochoamex / @jorgeortizdepinedoficial)
The bickering due to financial problems at the Actor’s House were starring Jorge Ortiz de Pinedo, Jesús Ochoa and Laura Zapata; while they assured us that the Association had diverted resources, others denied it.
According to Ortiz de Pinedo, Ochoa, as president of ANDA, stopped providing services to nurses and caregivers since 2019 and had stopped paying the Casa for 33 consecutive months, which had led to a severe crisis.
For his part, Jesús indicated that he would revoke the board of trustees of the Casa del Actual – which Jorge presided over – because there was so much corruption within that he had to take the case to court.

The protagonist of A family of 10 in January 2022 warned that he could file a lawsuit against his colleague for the slanderous statements he had made against him because they were affecting not only him, but several of his fellow asylum seekers .
One of the most serious complaints in this conflict is that ANDA’s debt to the Casa had amounted to 22 million pesos and it was difficult to cover the care of all its members.
