2020 № 1 Health care Financing in 2020: priorities within the national project «Health Care»
Analysis of future health financing shows that in 2020–2022, despite the difficult financial situation, the growth of financial support for the health system will continue. Among the priorities for 2020, we should highlight the increase in funding for cancer care. This is the implementation of the provisions of the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation on may 7, 2018 No. 204 "on national goals and strategic objectives of the development of the Russian Federation for the period up to 2024". The allocation of funds in the compulsory health insurance system is also based on these priorities. In particular, at the expense of mandatory medical insurance funds, financial incentives are provided for employees to identify oncological disease. Among the positive aspects are inter-budget transfers to the budget of the compulsory health insur¬ance Fund from the Federal budget to pay for high-tech medical care that is not included in the basic program mandatory medical insurance and birth certificates. All this should have a positive impact on the further development of health care.
