Reform Of Medical Services Financing Enters Into Force

Reform Of Medical Services Financing Enters Into Force

The law on introduction of a system of guarantees of payment for medical services from the state budget entered into force on January 30.

The Ministry of Health announced this in a statement, the Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"The Law of Ukraine No. 2168-VIII 'On State Financial Guarantees of Medical Care for the Population' dated October 19, 2017, entered into force today, January 30. The preparatory phase for introduction of medical reform began last year. Now, there are legal grounds for adoption of a number of decisions that will allow implementation of the previously announced plan for reform of primary healthcare," the statement said.

According to the statement, preparations are already underway for creation of the National Health Service of Ukraine, which is a national insurer that will conclude agreements with healthcare institutions and purchase medical services to the public from them.

According to the statement, the National Health Service of Ukraine will be created and launched into operation before July.

In addition, the process of autonomization of medical institutions (transformation of medical institutions into communal, non-profit enterprises) has begun.

With this status, they will be able to conclude contracts with the National Health Service and receive direct funding from the state budget for the services they provide.

According to statement, citizens will start choosing primary care physicians (family doctors, therapists, and pediatricians) and sign declarations with them in April 2018.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the parliament introduced the system of guarantees of payment for medical services from the state budget on October 19, 2017, and decided to create an electronic healthcare system within the framework of implementation of state guarantee of financing medical services for the population.
