Insulin during the war is free: how to get medicine

The Ministry of Health explained how to deliver insulin to people with diabetes.

During martial law, insulin release is simplified as much as possible. Insulin addicts can receive vital medications in both electronic and paper prescriptions. Doctors no longer indicate the trade name of the insulin in the prescription, only its type. And the overdose on insulin drugs has been abolished.

If the doctor has access to the electronic health system, he will create an electronic prescription, and his confirmation number and code will be sent to the patient’s phone. If you do not have access to the electronic health care system, the doctor will write a prescription on paper, which will put your signature and stamp. Insulin prescriptions are issued for no more than one month during martial law.

The insulin prescription can:

· Family doctor, therapist or pediatrician with whom the patient has a statement (according to the treatment plan prepared by an endocrinologist);

· Endocrinologist;

· The paper prescription can also be issued by any family doctor, therapist or pediatrician – with whom the patient has no statement.

It is important that the doctor now indicates in the prescription not the trade name of the medicine, but the type of insulin:

1) human genetic engineering insulin: – short-acting; – average share;

2) short-acting insulin analogue;

3) long-acting insulin analogue;

4) combined insulin (30/70 human genetic engineering, 30/70 analog insulin).

All insulin addicts will be able to receive insulin at no extra cost. This applies to the 47 drugs listed in the Reimbursable Drug Registry. The National Health Insurance Fund will reimburse pharmacies for the full cost of insulin.

Currently, 57 pharmacies are releasing insulin in the Zaporozhye region. Before contacting the nearest pharmacy, you should call them to find out their opening hours and check for insulin. You can see a list of pharmacies where there is insulin (constantly updated):
