Specialists of the Rabota.ru and SberZdorovye services conducted a joint study and found out whether the residents of Russia are satisfied with their state of health and how much money they spend per month on taking care of it. The study showed that more than half of the surveyed residents of Russia (56 per cent) are satisfied with their state of health.
According to the survey results, 68 per cent of respondents spend up to 10 per cent of their monthly income on their health. Another 23 per cent of survey participants have to spend 10-30 per cent of their earnings on their health, 5 per cent of those surveyed spend 30-50 per cent of their salaries on health services, and 4 per cent of Russian residents spend more than 50 per cent of their income on health issues.
In particular, 32 per cent of the respondents noted that the most expensive procedures from the health sector cost them up to 1,000 rubles. Another quarter of Russian residents spend a little more on their health, from 1,000 to 3,000 rubles. In turn, 17 per cent of respondents said that the most expensive procedures cost them from 3,000 to 5,000 rubles, 8 per cent of respondents spend 5,000-7,000 or 7,000-10,000 rubles on their health, and every tenth resident of Russia spends more than 10,000 rubles on healthcare.
In addition, experts have found out that Russians rarely take time off from work to see a doctor. Thus, 59 per cent of respondents never take time off from work to visit a doctor, 28 per cent of respondents do it 1-2 times a year, and 13 per cent 3 or more times a year.
