The problems of obtaining socially significant services for all groups of the population never lose their relevance. Recently, problems associated with obtaining highly effective and affordable medical care have become especially important. First of all, we are talking about health care services financed from the budget and compulsory medical insurance funds. However, paid medical services are no less important in ensuring a high quality of life for people. In order to ensure the availability of paid medicine for all groups of the population, regardless of income level, the state is implementing a number of measures to support medical organizations, including in the field of taxation. However, the existing measures are clearly not enough, it is necessary to develop and apply additional tools to improve the quality and accessibility of medical care. The authors consider the possibility of applying a number of these measures.
