An agreement on equal rights on medical assistance is ready.

For the last two days the experts discussed some points on agreement on equal rights for Russians and Byelorussians for medical assistance in medical institutions in both countries.

The discussion turned to be hard and laborious. This has happened due to large difference in legal support in two countries.
In Minsk, medical service is financed by the state budget, and in Moscow – by the budget as well as by insurance companies.
The last problem which left to be solved during further meetings is who will pay for Russian patients in Minsk, furthermore who will pay for Byelorussian patients in Moscow.

Leo Bokeriya suggests: we are leaving in capitalistic society with socialistic public health service

Leo Bokeriya is the world famous heart surgeon and a head of the Bakulev Center on heart and vessels surgery. The Center provides its patients with such excellent living conditions that one can not believe he is in hospital, because it looks more like a five star hotel. Leo is sure that walls also help to cure.
When the President visited the Center Leo has not asked him for any help, he just wanted to know the government’s plans on health service. Leo considers that the health service is ready for the reforms. The most important thing is to find financing for the patients so they do not think on how to pay for medical help, medicines and so on. And the only one way is to insure patients as everywhere in the world. For example, the cost of the disposable implements for the surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass is about $3, 017, but the Center can not spend such amount of its patients’ money.
