“For this inpatient care package [лечение COVID-19] we do not pay for the treated case, we give a budget. This is the principle of the fire brigade: we do not know how many fires there will be, but we must understand that if there are a lot of them, we can put out all of them, ”said the acting Heads of NSZU Oksana Movchan in an interview with the agency Interfax-Ukraine.
According to her, this principle of payment will help keep hospitals in a state of readiness.
