The terms of the competition are very strict. The ultimate result will be known only on December 13, 2004. The government plans to provide with sanatoria and health facilities about a million of veterans and invalids during the 2005 year.

The President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin suggested that the government should hold a sweeping discussion concerning the problems of the Public Health Service reform.
“The people should know what is planned by the government to avoid the overstated expects, baseless fears. Our people should know that a certain modernization of the public health service is planned to make the system more effective.”
“We must talk about it. We need feedback”, The President declared.

n/a The government of Russia approved state guarantees providing free medical treatment

On Monday the government approved the state guarantees program of providing the citizens of Russia with free medical aid during the 2005 year. This decree was signed by the Prime Minister Michael Fradkov. It is stated that the average sum per person will reach 3157 rubles, 1507 of which are given by means of the obligatory medical insurance.

As it is said in the decree, the citizens of Russia have the right to free ambulance, if something threatens their life, to free treatment, free diagnostics and free prophylaxis in hospitals, out-patients’ clinics and at home. The list of diseases is approved by the very program.

The President Putin reminded Michael Zurabov of the planning modernization in the Public Health Service System. So to all appearances the officials are going to tell us about the changes in the Public Health Service System and all together to number the things which a citizen may receive having his hundred dollars.

n/a Zurabov: The Russians Pay for Medical Aid 250 Billion Rubles Annually

The Minister of Public Health Service and Social Development Michael Zurabov stated, that according to official returns the population of the Russian Federation spends on medical aid and medicine 274 billion rubles annually, transmitted RIA “News”.

The actual sum, according to the Minister, could be even greater. This money is spent, in spite of the guaranteed by the Constitution free medical aid in state and local medical authorities. “What are the citizens paying for in state and local medical authorities? What is it that actually appears to be paid for? Still the answer isn’t found”, the Minister established.

Thus the Minister claimed that “the free character” of medical aid in fact appears to be inessential. It is caused by scanty financial support of current expenses of the public health system, obsolescence and high degree of medical equipment as well as low salaries of medical staff.

The Minister noted that medical aid can be officially made free again only by means of reformatting the public health service and remaking the system of its financing. Simultaneously he complained of the fact that one “mustn’t get down to business having no extra money”.

29/11/2004 Для модернизации российского здравоохранения потребуется двухлетний переходный период

Для модернизации российского здравоохранения потребуется двухлетний переходный период, сообщил в пятницу, 26.11.2004, на заседании расширенной коллегии министр здравоохранения и социального развития РФ Михаил Зурабов.

"Мы не говорим о том, что реформу надо делать завтра. Потребуется два года, чтобы отработать технические приемы", - сказал он.

За это время, по словам министра, лечебные учреждения должны быть подготовлены к преобразованиям в новые организационно-правовые формы, а медицинские работники пройти переобучение.

Говоря о необходимости модернизации, министр сообщил, что по данным социальных опросов до 70% респондентов на сегодняшний день неудовлетворены качеством предоставляемых медицинских услуг, тогда как в начале 1990-х это число составляло 50%.

Как сообщил Зурабов, в настоящее время объемы расходов на здравоохранение из федерального и региональных бюджетов колеблются от 2,9% до 3,1% ВВП, что "крайне мало".

В своем докладе министр указал на необходимость принятия ряда законодательных актов для дальнейшего развития системы здравоохранения в России.

В этом числе - новая редакция закона "Об обязательном медицинском страховании".

Согласно законопроекту, предполагается централизация системы обязательного медицинского страхования, в частности, для того, чтобы медицинский полис, который действует сегодня только на территории региона, действовал на всей территории России.

"Тогда никаких вопросов, какой человек, откуда, куда приехал не будет", - отметил в беседе с журналистами заместитель министра Владимир Стародубов.

Он сообщил, что федеральный закон об обязательном медицинском страховании будет рассмотрен Госдумой в первом квартале 2005 года.

Другие законопроекты касаются расширения организационно-правовых форм медицинских учреждений - "Об автономных учреждениях" и "О государственных (муниципальных) автономных некоммерческих организациях".

По словам министра, преобразование бюджетных медицинских учреждений, находящихся сейчас в рамках жесткого сметного финансирования, "позволит самостоятельно формировать доходную и расходную части бюджета медицинских организаций, появится большая гибкость в использовании имеющихся ресурсов".

Закон "О государственных гарантиях медицинской помощи", по замыслу реформаторов, должен установить виды, объемы, условия и порядок оказания медицинской помощи.

"Это позволит законодательно установить единую систему стандартизации медицинской помощи в стране вне зависимости от места ее предоставления", - подчеркнул Зурабов.
