Kazakhstanis to be able to receive services of specialized doctors within CSMI

by August 1, 2017 Fun

Within the framework of the compulsory social medical insurance system, Kazakhstanis will be able to change twice a year the polyclinic which they are attached to, as well as receive services of specialized doctors on the referral from a district doctor. This was stated by Minister of Healthcare Yelzhan Birtanov during the briefing at the Government press center.

He explained that according to the legislation on CSMI, citizens have the right to once a year, within the official attachment campaign, to choose a polyclinic and thus attach themselves to it. This will happen in autumn, and this work will already begin in September this year. In addition, during the year the citizen will be able to voluntarily change the polyclinic in case of a change of residence.

The Minister noted that the services of specialized doctors, as well as various laboratory tests, including ultrasound and computer tomography, are included in the health insurance package, subject to a referral from a district doctor.

The most important condition for receiving services is the evidence, based on which the district doctor decides whether to carry out certain analysis, � Y. Birtanov said.
