Chisinau, 20 Jan. /MOLDPRES/- Starting from 1 March 2023, every person who has the status of temporary protection should have a stable place of residence in the Republic of Moldova and therefore be registered with a certain family doctor. Director-general of the National Health Insurance Company (CNAM) Ion Dodon made the statement at a meeting with Resident Representative of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) in Moldova Nigina Abaszada.

Ion Dodon said that registration with family doctors will allow direct funding to the beneficiary. "At the same time, we want to simplify the reporting and recording mechanism by the providers and CNAM of the medical services provided to these people", he said.

Nigina Abaszada voiced openness to continuing the collaboration between the two institutions by signing a new partnership agreement for 2023-2027, which would also include the aspect of covering the entire spectrum of medical services for refugees.

"We remain open to collaboration. We are committed to supporting the Government, including in the implementation of temporary protection measures for refugees, which gives us the same legitimacy in providing support to both refugees and those who will obtain temporary protection status. We are ready to cover the expenses for all refugees, regardless of status", she said.

In April 2022, CNAM and UNFPA signed a partnership agreement to finance the sexual and reproductive health services offered to refugees. Thus, refugee citizens of Ukraine have free access to a range of reproductive health services included in the Single Program of Compulsory Health Care Insurance.
