MOSCOW, January 21 (Itar-Tass) — The newly introduced commercial ambulance service will not affect work of regular brigades of free ambulance service, Head of Moscow’s Healthcare Department Georgy Golukhov told a news conference on Monday.
Within the second quarter of the current year, Moscow will have up to 20 brigades of commercial ambulance service. The healthcare department’s deputy head, Nikolai Plavunov said the commercial service will be available for clients having policies of voluntary medical insurance. “I believe, as yet, that would be enough,” he said adding first five brigades would start working beginning from March 5-7.
He stressed that the existing ambulance service, which telephone is “03” would continue being free of charge.
The commercial ambulance will have a specially allocated telephone number. The brigades will be using the equipment, like the regular service does. The planned time of arrival will not be different, either.
As for prices for the commercial ambulance services, they are not clear yet.
