From April 1, 2020, Ukraine plans to introduce electronic sick leave. the Deputy Minister of Social Policy Oleg Koval said.

“The Ministry of Social Policy together with the Ministry of Health plans to launch electronic sick leave starting April 1,”- Oleg Koval said at press conference.

According to him, the process of issuing electronic sick leave will be automated. Each doctor who issues the sick-list will have to sign the document with his digital signature in the electronic system. Moreover, information through the register in the Pension Fund is automatically transferred to the Social Insurance Fund, and there they will know that a person is sick and should receive compensation, since he is a payer of a single social contribution.

“It is planned that the sick-list, which the doctor will open, will have a fixed term. Now the country has protocols. Each disease has an average number of days to treat. For example, in certain cases, a person is sick for six days. The hospital opens immediately for six days. If a person has improved his health, he may not go to the doctor to close the sick-list, but simply goes to work. If a person needs more treatment, she goes to the doctor again and a new one opens on the day of closing of the previous sick leave, ” Koval said.

“This is allow us to monitor all the issues associated with the issuance of fictitious sick leave. We know about the facts of completely fake sick leave, when one doctor gives out one hundred sick leaves per day, we know where there is no drop in production at the enterprise, but 90% of employees are on sick leave, ” Added deputy minister.

Employers will receive all informations about their employees’ hospitals from electronic systems.

It is estimated that the introduction of electronic sick leave disability will save up to 5 billion UAH per year.

Moreover, all traditional sick leave, opened before April 1, 2020, will be accepted for reimbursement.
