Starting from April 2020, the Ukrainians will be able to process sick leave certificates online. The doctors will confirm the document with an electronic signature as Prime Minister of Ukraine Oleksiy Honcharuk reported on Telegram.

“From April, the Ukrainians will be able to process the sick leave certificate online – there will no more need to write them out on paper sheets and visit polyclinic once more. The government introduces the system of the electronic sick leave certificates,” Honcharuk stated.

It is noted that the doctor will be able to confirm the certificate with an electronic signature. The system will send information about the certificate to the employer and Social Insurance Fund automatically.

According to Honcharuk, implementation of the electronic sick leave certificate will accelerate the procedure of getting insurance payments and decrease fraud.

As we reported, 29 million Ukrainian citizens have signed declarations with their family doctors.

The reform of the healthcare primary section (family doctors and pediatricians) kicked off in Ukraine in 2018. By the estimates of the Health Index survey conducted in 2019, 73% of respondents are fine with their doctors.
