Annotation The article examines the factors that indicate the perception of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine as a subject of public policy in the health sector. The main attention is paid to the critical analysis of the judgment of the volunteer medical care. It is noted that the interpretation of the essence of free medical care actually considered the socio-economic condition of the state, the objective inability to provide all citizens free of charge all the necessary medical care. Emphasis is on the wrong vector of health insurance in Ukraine, as the Court concluded that Article 49 of the Basic Law states it is a voluntary health insurance. Minor character compulsory insurance is to ensure that the Court’s opinion it is not contrary to the Constitution of the state only in the case when citizens will not pay the mandatory premiums (contributions). These arguments in favor of two levels chargeless medical care and the need to understand everyone’s right to health insurance as the right to compulsory health insurance.
