  • Taking into account that starting from July 1, 2024, care for pregnant women in all primary medical institutions, guaranteed childbirth assistance measures in regional, city and district maternity institutions will be fully covered by the state, and medical assistance provided to pregnant and giving birth women who apply from other regions will be provided on a paid basis with the exception of urgent and unavoidable cases and those who apply with the policy.
  • Starting from 2025, it should be ensured that the costs incurred for medical services provided to women in maternity institutions established on the basis of private and public-private partnerships will be covered by the budget and the funds of the state medical insurance fund, based on the number of births (per treated case) and the results of the work performed, as well as within the guaranteed package.
