MOSCOW, January 21 (Itar-Tass) — Salaries of medical personnel and mid-level specialists in 2013 will increase by 7–8 percent. Health Minister Veronika Skvortsova said.
“We think we will provide a about 7–8 percent growth this year,” she said at a meeting with President Vladimir Putin on Monday, January 21.
“We would like the pay raise to be harmonised with the raising the health care tariff as its component to make sure it is not perceived as some artificial addition to the payment for medical care,” the minister said.
“The mandatory health insurance system is organised in such a way now that we will most certainly be able to do this,” she added.
Speaking of the results of last year, Skvortsova said salaries of physicians in 2012 had increased by 13 percent to 32,700 roubles, and those of mid-level medical personnel by 17 percent to 19,000 roubles.
