Study by RNC Pharma and Medvestnik: 78% of Russian Doctors Expect Salaries to Drop after New Covid Payments Are Introduced, Young Physicians at Risk

Tuesday, July 26, 2022

Only 1.1% expect a salary raise after the changes to payments to healthcare workers dealing with COVID-19 patients are introduced, according to a survey conducted by the RNC Pharma analyst company and the Medvestnik platform for doctors. At the same times, about 2.2% of the physicians believe that their salaries might decrease only a little, by no more than 10%. Another 2.9% expect neither an increase nor decrease, saying that “everything will remain more or less the same.”

As many as 70% of the study participants expect their salaries to drop by 20–30%. However, many of those who chose to write in their own answer said that their salaries will fall by as much as 50–60%, with some even expecting to lose their jobs, probably due to the disbandment of COVID teams. Thus, the total number of doctors who except a significant reduction in income is 78%. Notably, the problem was not region-specific. At the same time, there was a statistically significant difference between age groups, in particular, the share of specialists who expect a significant drop in salaries was 10% higher in the group from 23 to 45 years than in the group from 46 to 65 years.

Finally, around 8.1% noted that they do not work with patients with COVID-19, so the new changes will not affect them in any way.
