Plan surgeries, including eye surgeries have been resumed at the Akhalkalaki hospital. The funding of plan surgeries have been resumed from March 1st.

The Ministry of Health reported to the First Channel of Georgia. Surgeries, including eye surgeries will again be funded, at the Akhalkalaki regional hospital, as well as throughout Georgia. Plan surgeries will be performed after the approval of the Ministry of Health.

It should be reminded that in November of last year, due to the spread of coronavirus in the country, the issuance of a guarantee sheet for planned surgical services within the framework of the State General Health Program was stopped.

The surgeries are free for pensioners:  the state pays 70%, the municipality pays 30% . The rest of the citizens pay 30% of the total cost.
