However, he noted that "there are particular types of services, specialized, with the use of expensive drugs." Therefore, the tariff for such services will be considered, including additional financing.

"We are like a small health, the Ministry of Finance: there is a certain amount of money, and we must say that we can do for the money. If the government and especially the Parliament, will give us additional money, we will be happy, but we will need to decide who we give and whom not to. But the budget's not bottomless. Our task is to effectively and fairly distribute the funds that the Parliament decides to allocate to health", - said Petrenko.
