Today, with the participation of representatives of the medical industry of Odesa, Vinnitsa, Mykolayiv and Kherson regions, an Interregional Meeting on the Implementation of the State Guarantees of Medical Care of the Population in 2020 was held.

The meeting was held by the Deputy and Advisor of the Minister of Health of Ukraine Pavlo Kovtonyuk and Matvey Khrenov, as well as the head of the National Health Service of Ukraine Oleg Petrenko.

Deputy Mayor of the Regional State Administration Vitaliy Svichynskyi welcomed the greetings to the west.

"The Medical Guarantee Program is a list and scope of medical services and drugs that are paid from the state budget. The new financing model puts the patient at the center of attention, ensures the implementation of state guarantees on medical care and allows us to clearly define the roles and responsibilities of local self-government bodies and the leadership of medical institutions ", - said Vitaliy Svichinsky.

The main goal of the event is to provide a vision of the main components of the state health insurance program and to prepare health care institutions for the next stage of reforms starting in 2020.

It should be noted that in accordance with the provisions of the Law of Ukraine "On State Financial Guarantees of Medical Care of the Population", from 2020 a program of medical guarantees will be introduced in Ukraine. The program will determine the volume of medical services and medicines that are guaranteed to the population and are paid from the state budget on the basis of uniform tariffs.

The program of medical guarantees will exist as a single budget program for payment of all medical services and medicines provided for in Art. 4 of the mentioned Law in corresponding areas, including children under 16 years old. With its introduction, the mechanism of financing medical services for the population is changing: instead of a medical subvention at the expense of which the maintenance of health facilities is carried out, within the framework of the medical guarantees, the medical care of patients under the contracts on medical care with the National Health Service of Ukraine will be paid, based on the principle of "money going for a patient."

Recall that during the May 30-31, the XXV Congress of Cardiovascular Surgeons of Ukraine, which devoted its life to various directions or not the most complicated field of medicine - cardiovascular surgery, continues in Odessa.
