Finansovyj žhurnal — Financial Journal, 2018, issue 3, 64-77

Abstract: Regulation of access to specialist medical care is widely viewed as effective tool for health cost containment. However, the results of the access reforms in well-developed public health systems in practice are often below the expected level. The article provides an overview of structure and outcomes of major national access reform programmes in European countries. Based on the collected data key determinants of successful adoption of gatekeeping model were highlighted in the article. The author proposes the promising ways of the development of the current access model reform in Russia.
