As Ukrinform reported, the second phase of medical reform, which began on April 1, provided that healthcare facilities that provide specialized and highly specialized medical care would receive funding under an agreement with the NHA . In particular, it was intended that the patient could choose the medical institution in which he wished to receive assistance, and the NHA would pay that medical institution for the services provided.
At the same time, on May 4, President Vladimir Zelensky announced that he could not authorize the second stage of medical reform in its current form, as around 50,000 doctors could be dismissed and more than 300 hospitals closed due of the new financial mechanism.
Zelensky called on the Minister of Health, the chairman of the competent committee of the Verkhovna Rada and the chief doctor to urgently propose ways to resolve these problems.
