Abstract

Introduction: The European Union clinical University hospitals, including those from new European countries, are providing medical services according high quality standards; however, there are significant differences in medical service payment by the state. There are also differences in the amount of the payment for in and out-patient services. According to World Bank’s assessment, several of new European Union member states are ranked as high-income countries alongside to old European member states, but the payment gap of medical services, between these European member states, is very relevant. Aim: To analyze the gynecological service payment covered by state across the European countries. Results: Insurance costs of the physitians are very different across the European Union countries, with the highest percentage in Germany (15.5%) andthe lowest in France (100 Eur per year). In most countries, surgery is paid by the state, but, by contrast, in Latvia patients have to pay fixed payment of EUR 43 for treatmant even in case of malignancy and additional paymants for staying in hospital. The fees of oncogynecological surgeons for the full workload ranges from 4,000 Eur in Denmark to 500 Eur in Macedonia after the taxes. Refundment from government varies a lot for the same manipulations in different countries. Conclusion: Despite the fact that new Europan countries are ranked as high income countries by World Bank, there is tremendous diference in the manipulation costs coveredby government and refundment of medical stuff. Keywords: Gynecology; Oncology; Costs; Europe
