Tariffs quoted are not official – this is probably the only one of the projects that have yet to consider the Ministry of health and correct position. However, the Institute Amosova, who is obliged to develop tariffs before the New year, complain about the repeated changing of requirements and calculation methods.

As conceived by the initiators, the cost of treatment in Kiev or on the periphery should be the same. When the government approves the tariffs will start to operate such a scheme: a patient comes to the hospital with a referral for an operation or some other action that gets a check, to pay which the national health service. Using money for a specific patient will receive exactly the hospital, which he chose to receive the service.
