OREANDA-NEWS The President of the All-Russian Union of Insurers, Igor Yurgens, proposed transferring all doctors to individual entrepreneurs so that they could receive a decent salary.

According to Jurgens, the reason for the low incomes of medical professionals is the so-called "leveling". Because of this, the achievements of good specialists do not affect their salary.

"Why not do it, as in the West, where they do not attend the clinic, but the specialist? Why not transfer the doctors to the PI?" - said Yurgens.

He suggested that doctors rent offices, take patients in private and "earn money normally." According to Yurgens, if the medical services will be in demand, the specialist can even become a rich person, the newspaper "Izvestia" reports.
