Order of February 6, 2021 No. 257-r

The government has set the maximum allowable amount of federal co-financing that the regions can receive for the modernization of primary health care. We are talking about the construction, repair and re-equipment of city polyclinics, medical outpatient clinics, feldsher-obstetric points and regional hospitals. Many of them are located in rural areas, urban-type settlements and small towns of the country.

Context

From Mikhail Mishustin’s opening remarks at the Government meeting

By the order, which was signed by the Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, the maximum level of co-financing within the framework of the program “Modernization of primary health care” is set equal to the same indicator for the implementation of national projects.

In particular, the maximum amount of co-financing – 99% – is provided for 26 regions. Among them are Adygea, Altai, Dagestan, Ingushetia, Karelia, Karachay-Cherkess Republic, Stavropol Territory, North Ossetia, Khakassia, Chuvash Republic, Bryansk, Oryol, Penza and Pskov regions.

90 billion rubles are allocated for the development of primary health care in 2021. Until 2025, at least 500 billion rubles will be allocated for these purposes. The subsidies will be able to receive the territories where the regional program of health care modernization is in effect. The amount of funding is calculated according to a special formula, taking into account the number of citizens who have a compulsory medical insurance policy, the degree of deterioration of medical institutions, and demographic indicators. The money can be spent on major repairs, construction and reconstruction of buildings, the purchase of medical equipment, the purchase of vehicles for the delivery of patients to hospitals, the departure of doctors on calls.

The signed document changes Government decree of October 18, 2019 No. 2468-r.
