2019 № 6 New rules of obligatory medical insurance: major changes
The rules of obligatory health insurance regulate legal relations of subjects and participants of compulsory health insurance. New rules of obligatory health insurance developed by the Ministry of health of Russia in accordance with the recommendations of the Ministry of justice. The essence of these recommendations was not to make regular changes to the existing rules of obligatory health insurance, but to approve new rules of obligatory health insurance. To a large extent, these changes are associated with the Informatization of health care, with the advent of legislative regulation of the use of telemedicine technologies. Most of the changes affect the order of calculation of the value of sanctions applied to the medical organisations in the mandatory medical insurance system. In turn, these changes reflect the desire to reduce the financial burden on state (municipal) institutions and make it easier for them to achieve the level of wages provided for by the "may" presidential Decrees of 2012.
