The constitutional Court of Ukraine the submission on the audit of the constitutionality of the law «On state financial guarantees medical care» will show whether KSU independent body said today in the Verkhovna Rada MP from the Opposition bloc Alexander Vilkul. Video of the speech posted on his YouTube channel.
The politician believes that under the guise of reform the government wants to transfer people on a wholly paid medicine.
«In a country where the average wage is little more than 200 dollars, and most pensions – about $ 70, people will be forced to pay for treatment at European prices. It’s crazy, – said the MP. – The Ministry of health and the Cabinet are unable last year to answer a simple question: what will be included in the basic guaranteed package of medical care, how much will this help, how much will need to pay the copayments. And medicine, meanwhile, continues to be funded by the Cabinet as a residual, getting 30-40% of the demand. Tens of thousands of Ukrainians die each year due to the fact that it did not receive necessary treatment. Thousands of doctors are leaving each year to work in Poland, Czech Republic, Germany, finally lost faith that they will be able to feed their families and provide a decent future. Here are the real results of activities of the government in General and MoH in particular.»
Vilkul added that the constitutional Court waiting for consideration, a record number of cases, submissions and constitutional complaints, but the question of medical reform should be the priority.
«I appeal to the Constitutional Court and its newly elected President. You can address the issues of powers of the President and the Prime Minister to endlessly argue about the constitutionality of laws and regulations. But to delay the consideration of the question of «madrepore» – is simply criminal. It concerns the life and health of each person, and this issue needs to be addressed immediately. Inhuman experiments of the Ministry of health over the people should be terminated and this matter must put the constitutional Court. And this will be a test for the constitutional Court to be independent, it serves the state and the people or serves the interests of those in power», – said the politician.
Vilkul: the Inhuman experiments of the Ministry of health on people must be stopped. This will be a test for the constitutional Court 27.02.2018
