Оплата населением медицинской помощи: социальные и региональные различия

The paper analyses dynamic of out-of-pocket payment for medical services, its burden on household’s budgets, and demonstrates the differences in these indicators for different age, income, and regional groups of population. The existence of two models of payments is demonstrated. More solvent patients and residents of more developed regions prefer to pay for the treatment officially and to visit private clinics, while patients with low income and residents of poor regions often resort to informal payments.
