The transfer of the health system for insurance model will start in 2017 and will last three years.
According to the MOH, the transformation of the system will start with the launch of the European model of family medicine at the existing primary system Ukrainian health care (clinics, outpatient clinics, TSPMSD).
Deputy Health Minister Paul Kovtonyuk said that over the past 25 years in Ukraine has developed 21 bill on the introduction of health insurance.
"Many of them included the creation of large bureaucratic structures or redirecting budgetary flows in someone's pocket - fortunately, Parliament did not allow it. The goal of our team - start run insurance model of medical practice already in 2017 and we found a way to do it with minimal and clear all changes in legislation, "- said Kovtonyuk.
According to him, the Ukrainian will be able to freely choose a family doctor and pediatrician for their children and sign him direct agreements with clearly stated terms of service guaranteed and paid by the state.
"if the patient does not meet the family doctor, he can change it. Family physicians deliver information in kindergarten, school, swimming pool. Binding to the place of residence is canceled. Our goal - to every family physician. The family doctor should be the agent of family health care system, to guide, monitor health and provide all primary diagnosis. The family must trust him, and for that the doctor should be motivated - especially financially, "- said Kovtonyuk.
Also, the Health Ministry said that primary care physicians will be able to choose any organizational form of work - FOPy, clinics, dispensaries and TSPMSD.
The work will be paid on a per capita rate based on the number of concluded agreements and physician adherence to medical treatment and diagnostic protocols.
