Business Ombudsman Boris Titov suggested to change system of payment of medical services under mandatory medical insurance (OMS): the current principle of allocation of quotas must be replaced on principle postpaid, based on the number of served patients, told RIA Novosti in the press service.

"The system of payment of medical services provided under compulsory medical insurance needs to be changed. Replace the current principle of allocation of quotas must come the principle of postpaid, on the basis of the actual number of patients served" - quoted Titov's press service.

"We need to change the resource allocation system, and the money should go to the admissions, not to the budget of a particular clinic. By law every person should have the right to choose where to be treated... it is Necessary to build a strategy of development of the industry, based on freedom of choice of patients. Technically it is no problem, personalized view of patients there for ten years. We just need a political decision", - said Titov.

From the point of view of the participants, the current system in which quotas for service medical insurance to actually manually distributed once a year between medical institutions in the public and private ownership, "hinder the possibility of development of private medicine."
