Healthy leader of a sick people

Health care is falling apart. The head of state tells jokes. Everything goes its own way. The highest events dedicated to the urgent resolution of crisis phenomena in our medicine consisted of two parts. First, from the “meeting of Vladimir Putin with representatives of the public”, and immediately after it, from the “expanded meeting of the Presidium of the State Council”, chaired by the president. I note that both of these actions did not have to be similar to traditional ritual events, such as the annual big press conference of the head of state, a “direct line” with him, or a message with which he speaks to the establishment. After all, this time the occasion is purely business. Even scandalous. Ordinary people are openly dissatisfied with state medicine and especially with bureaucratic innovations in it. And physicians have lately been protesting louder against the aforementioned innovations, and against the rampant Continue Reading

Healthy leader of a sick people

Putin responds to people's discontent with state medicine and the apparent increase in tension within this system in the “straight line” genre with himself.

How else to strip money from the sick

In the corridors of power, they are plotting another innovation. As always, quietly, although it concerns everyone. This is a system of compulsory health insurance. At a meeting in the Ministry of Finance with the participation of representatives of the Central Bank and top managers of insurance companies recently discussed the reform of the MLA. The idea is tricky: it is planned to offer the regions to allocate those types of medical care, the costs of which are easier to predict, and to draw insurers to the formation of “reasonable tariffs” for these services. It turns out that now they are unreasonable? Immediately there is a reason to start, because the attempts of our authorities to “improve” the tariffs for something almost always turn them up. It is assumed that the regional authorities, with the participation of insurers, will have to determine what and how much costs in the MLA Continue Reading
