Within the framework of the Compulsory Social Health Insurance system, Kazakhstanis will be able to change the polyclinic of attachment twice a year, as well as receive the services of specialist doctors in the direction of the district doctor. This was stated by the Minister of Healthcare of the Republic of Kazakhstan Yelzhan Birtanov during the briefing in the press center of the Government.
He explained that according to the law on CSHI citizens have the right once a year, within the framework of the official attachment campaign, to choose a polyclinic and thus to attach themselves to it. This will happen in the autumn, and in September this year such work will begin. In addition, during the year the citizen will be able to voluntarily change the polyclinic in case of a change of residence.
At the same time, the Minister noted that the services of specialist doctors, as well as various laboratory tests, including ultrasound, and computed tomography are included in the health insurance package, subject to the availability of a direction of a district doctor.
"The most important condition for receiving services is the availability of evidence, on the basis of which the district doctor decides whether to carry out certain studies," Y. Birtanov said.
