Динамика участия различных групп населения России в оплате медицинской помощи

The paper analyses the dynamics of the incidence of payment for medical services in different social groups, as well as the dynamics of health care expenditure burden on budgets of households with different income levels. Throughout the 2000s, more solvent population is increasingly applying for paid medical services, preferring to pay for the treatment officially. Poor patients and less developed areas residents often resort to the forms of payment associated with a greater risk of catastrophic expenditure: to informal payments, as opposed to the official, to direct payment, as opposed to voluntary health insurance.
