Incentive payments to doctors will be extended until 2021

Incentive payments to doctors for working with coronavirus patients will be extended until 2021. The mechanism for calculating payments will change.

As the Kommersant, said Finance Minister Anton Siluanov at a meeting with the United Russia faction. He said that next year the government provided the necessary funds in the Reserve Fund for these purposes. The size of federal payments for work with patients with coronavirus will remain at the current year's level.

The Minister of Finance stressed that now the calculation of additional payments will be jointly carried out by the Ministry of Labor and the Ministry of Health on the basis of an off-budget fund. A new approach to the administration of payments will avoid conflicts between the authorities and their recipients.

Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova recalled that medical trade unions have repeatedly criticized the accrual mechanism, which led to an underestimate of amounts, as well as the list of recipients, which did not include a number of categories of medical workers.

In September, during a meeting with the government, Golikova proposed to charge payments for actually worked hours... According to her, doctors and heads of medical organizations consider such an order to be more socially fair.

Additional payments to doctors working with coronavirus patients in Russia introduced in April... It was planned that the support measures would be in effect for three months, but in June support measures extended... Then the Russian government decided to continue paying again.
