Costs during pregnancy are a concern for every woman. Every day more and more medical services become paid. Turning to women’s consultation, women are faced with a constant need to pay for examinations, tests and medications.
The list of free medical services for pregnant women is determined in various laws. In addition, the presence of a compulsory medical insurance policy guarantees medical care to all citizens of the Russian Federation. Even if you do not have a policy, the LCD workers are required to register you, but most likely you will have to give an obligation to get a policy. Free medical services for a policy are provided only in state institutions.
For each pregnant woman, a generic certificate is issued. Certificate financing is carried out by the state. The certificate is issued to women after 30 weeks of pregnancy. The generic certificate consists of four identical parts. The first of which remains in the LCD, the second is provided by the maternity hospital, the third must be presented to the children’s clinic, in which the newborn baby will be observed up to three years, but the last part remains for the young mother.
During the observation of pregnancy in the LCD, a woman may need additional examinations. Referrals to the relevant clinics are issued by the attending physician, who must immediately notify that the services will be paid, or they are included in the list of free examinations under the compulsory medical insurance policy.
Moreover, a pregnant woman cannot refuse a free examination, but paid examinations can be done at will. If a woman requires hospital treatment or supervision during pregnancy, these services should be free of charge. The institution in which the treatment is presented must be public. According to the testimony of the doctor observing the pregnancy, a woman can be referred for sanatorium treatment. Women who have been treated for a disease belonging to the risk group during pregnancy can receive a free voucher. Working women are provided with a sick leave for the duration of treatment in a sanatorium.
Finding a list of free medical services for pregnant women is quite difficult. You can ask for such a list in HC or from employees of an insurance company who provide a compulsory medical insurance policy.
If you have been assigned a paid study, do not rush to lay out the money. First, find out if this service is really paid for pregnant women.
