First of all, in Russia, you can dial 103 for a direct link to the medical emergency ambulance. All operators speak Russian and also should be able to speak English, grab a Russian speaker around you if you are struggling to be understood.
The national general emergency number is 112, which will link you to an operator. They will refer you to the service you need, whether you need the police (102), fire services (101), or an ambulance (103). In Moscow, the 112 operators can also help if you smell a gas leak, use 104 to talk directly about gas leaks near you.
The Russian Federation Constitution has given all citizens the right to free healthcare. However, after Russia’s financial crisis in 2014, significant health budget cuts have decreased healthcare quality. Almost half of the basic medical facilities have fewer workers than they would actually need, with some being shut down.
Russia has an insurance-based health program. But, there are many rural areas where most people are not protected by health insurance. The number of physicians in rural areas was 43.8 per 10,000 residents but just 12.1. As a proportion of the total number of physicians, the number of general practitioners was 1.26%. There are about 9.3 beds per thousand inhabitants — nearly double the OECD average. In 2008, the Russian healthcare sector also hired 621,000 physicians and 1,3 million, nurses.
Health Insurance in Russia
Russia has an insurance-based health program. If you are a foreign citizen and seeking treatment in a Russian hospital, you must need either public insurance via jobs in Russia or private insurance. In case of an emergency, hospitals can treat patients without any insurance. But the patients must be billed for treatment post-emergency. To seek other treatment, you would need to provide insurance proof. For more read:
Private health insurance increases the chances of greater access to healthcare. This includes shorter waiting times, greater convenience, good treatment, and a bilingual doctor.
Usually, Russian health insurance premiums work according to your medical background.
Some international health insurance has a few medical clinics in touch. So make sure before taking any insurance. Read this guide for more information.
