Abstract
Arguments for restructuring of psychiatric service on the principles of medical insurance are given. Because mental disorders are characterized by chronic development and high disability rate, the necessity of mixed budget-insurance financing of psychiatry is grounded. Obligatory state insurance must be conducted for all mentally ill persons. However, only a certain part of outpatient care and the treatment period in hospital are to be insured, while the remaining part of outpatient visits or hospital stay will be financed from the budget. The method of calculation of the incurred number of the doctor's visits and the length of hospital stay during the year is discussed.
