In 2026, the Federal Compulsory Medical Insurance Fund will continue to direct funds to territorial funds to co-finance the costs of medical organizations for paying doctors and incentive payments for detecting cancer.
On November 16, the State Duma adopted in final reading a bill to extend the deadlines for the provision of interbudgetary transfers to finance certain expenses of the Territorial Compulsory Medical Insurance Funds (TFOMS) until the end of 2026. The funds are used to create a normalized safety stock (NSS) to co-finance the costs of medical organizations for paying doctors and incentive payments for detecting cancer.
Changes are being made to the law “On compulsory health insurance in the Russian Federation”. In the current document, transfers for these purposes could be provided until the end of 2025.
According to the amendments, the Federal Compulsory Medical Insurance Fund will have to allocate 7.77 billion rubles to pay doctors in 2024, 8.27 billion rubles in 2025, and 8.25 billion rubles in 2026. The amount of funds to finance incentive payments for the detection of cancer will be 81.1, respectively; 83.3 and 85.5 million rubles.
Last week Deputy Prime Minister Tatiana Golikova announced a new revision of the procedure for paying doctors for cancer alert. But the Ministry of Health considers it inappropriate to seriously raise them, MV reported.
