In 2019, a number of medical services, in particular, 54 diagnostic and therapeutic procedures will become free in Ukraine. They will be available free of charge from July 1, but only if you have a referral from a family doctor, general practitioner or pediatrician. Deputy Minister of Health Pavlo Kovtonyuk reported this.

‘Starting July 1, 2019, using the referral from your family doctor you will be able to receive a package of diagnostic and treatment services that will be paid by the National Health Service on the principle of ‘money goes for the patient’. Certainly, you don’t have to pay for it. Having the referral, you will be able to choose where to pass tests or get the diagnosis. It can be a public institution, or a private one,’ the Deputy Minister said.

The service package covers testing for the most common diseases of internal organs, heart, lungs, skeleton, and the 10 most common types of oncology among men and women. In 90 percent of cases, this will be enough for the family and a specialist to determine the diagnosis and the plan treatment.
