"Then we’ll approach the insurance model [of medicine] step by step," the press service quotes the minister as saying at a press conference in Chernivtsi.
Bohatyriova said that medical insurance in Ukraine would be introduced sooner or later.
"There’s a lot of talk about the model of medicine. We’ll surely arrive at medical insurance. This is because 90% of the population considers health care to be of great importance. Forty-six percent is ready to introduce full medical insurance. These people are ready to make deposits to fully provide for themselves," she said.
