The experiment to provide compensation for the purchase of medicine to people in Moscow with cystic fibrosis will be extended until 31 December 2021. The decision was made at a meeting of the Presidium of the Moscow Government. The resolution was signed by Sergei Sobyanin.

The trial began in January. Patients with cystic fibrosis can receive compensation to buy the necessary medicine at chemists. It is considered easier for many patients to buy what they need themselves rather to have to go to an outpatient clinic to collect it.

Any people with cystic fibrosis except those who have been declared incapacitated by a court, can take part in the experiment.

115 (24 percent) of the 484 people in Moscow with this disease have already been compensated. 66.97 million roubles has been paid out for medicine. Given the success of the experiment, the city decided to extend it for another year.
