Russia has expanded the mandatory health insurance program for 2024-2026

Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed Decree No. 371 on March 23, 2024, which expands the parameters of the compulsory health insurance program for the year 2024 as well as for the planning period of 2025 and 2026.
The maximum amount that a medical organization can allocate from compulsory health insurance funds for the acquisition of technical equipment, as well as production and household supplies, has now been raised to 400,000 rubles per item. Previously, this limit did not exceed 100,000 rubles. The tariff structure also includes maintenance and repair costs.
Another change concerns the salaries of medical workers providing high-tech assistance. “Given that a portion of the high-tech medical treatments will be included within the basic program of mandatory health insurance starting in 2024, the government has introduced increasing coefficients through the enacted resolution,” the government stated.
The program of state guarantees for 2024 and the planning period of 2025 and 2026 was approved in December 2023. Financing has been increased by more than 400 billion rubles. Part of the volume of high-tech medical care in such profiles as ophthalmology, urology, traumatology-orthopedics, cardiology, is now provided within the framework of the basic program of compulsory medical insurance.
