The Opposition bloc demands the abolition of the medical “reform” in its present form. According to MP Serhiy Lovochkin, the party did not vote for this antisocial law. It was adopted by the efforts of the power and “fake” opposition parties. Now there are few opportunities to stop the beginning of its operation from January 1, 2018, but they can and should be used.
“We are convinced that this law is contrary to the Constitution. Making the majority of medical services paid (with prices of UAH 100-150 thousand for treatment), the power did not register at the same time, what would get into a guaranteed package of free services. In addition, what is even worse, the law establishes the possibility of narrowing this package each year while adopting state budget,” Serhiy Lovochkin says.
According to the politician, a situation is being created where, due to a shortage of funds, a free program may not cover even the basic types of medical care (primary, emergency), not to mention hospital treatment.
“The conclusion is one: the adopted “reform” is not acceptable, it should be canceled. In addition, most importantly, it is necessary to stop the power that takes such decisions. It is necessary the medicine to be led by specialists in medicine, not by civil activists, the economics – by specialists in the economy, and not amateurs, who have raised tariffs, destroyed industry and collapsed the hryvnia. It is necessary to run the country in such a way that people do not need to think, where to get money for basic necessities: food, clothing and medicine,” the MP said.
