Chechen Residents Complain They Have to Pay For All Medical Services

Puppet Chechen regime was claiming that life was normalized in Chechnya and life condutions were improved. One of their propagand is 90% of residents in the country has the mandatory medical insurances and they have free access to health services. But in past days a news appearedd at Kavkaz-Uzel that shows Chechen civilians have to pay for all medical services although their insurances.

The health care institutions’ activities seriously dissatisfy some residents of the country. Specifically, according to the residents of Grozny, when seeking medical care in municipal hospitals, they have to buy needed medicines with their own money and to pay the doctors “in spite of notices in all health care institutions saying about free treatment”.

“These are mere words and we have only paper free medical services. Virtually, we have to pay for everything. Last week, our grandson was taken to a hospital in the Oktyabrsky district of Grozny. And the daughter said that for the first two days everything they needed, including drugs, was provided free. Then they run out of one thing or another – syringes, drugs, etc. Moreover, the wards are awfully stuffy, the medical personnel is often very apathetic towards patients”, a resident of Grozny Marina D. confided to a correspondent of the “Kavkaz-Uzel”.

“In hospital No.3 in Grozny, where I was put, there was a notice on each floor saying that treatment is free and all drugs are available”, a local resident Sultan I. says. “But then it turned out that there seemed to be all the drugs available, but those I needed they somewhat lacked. I had to buy them with my money. Later I learned that others had been told the same thing. But without medical insurance they do not even examine you, saying nothing of treatment. You also have to pay for tests, x-rays and everything else. And when being discharged from hospital, you pay a thousand rubles.”
