Study by RNC Pharma and Medvestnik: More Than 55% of Russian Physicians Are Not Sure How New Compensations Work

Monday, February 27, 2023

In early February, branches of the Social Fund of the Russian Federation began distributing special payments to doctors as part of a government program to support healthcare workers. At the same time, more than 55% of doctors say that they are not sure how large those payments will be, according to a survey conducted by the RNC Pharma analyst company and the Medvestnik platform for doctors.

Around 36% of the respondents have either already received the bonuses or are not applying for them, with the total number of medical staff who do not expect any compensation approaching 20%. At the time of the study, only 16.3% of the physicians were compensated, 6.3% of which were completely satisfied with the amount. Another 6.8% of the respondents did not experience any delays, while noting that the amount was “below expectations”, and 3.2% said that the amount was “very insignificant.” Interestingly, these answers did not differ from region to region, meaning the situation is practically the same all over the country.

Among those 11.7% who chose to give their own answer, many said that they had not known about the payments before the survey. A number of the respondents said that neither they nor the higher management had any information about the procedure or pay frequency. Some even said that it was up to their medical organization how to and whether to follow government orders or not.
