Additional information about medical practice license

Medical license grants the right to practice in particular premises (approved by several authorities) and within particular specialties (according to the Nomenclature of medical specialties). Medical practice license is issued for dentists (for a dental practice),dermatologists, operations with MRI and other.

A medical license is issued for unlimited term.

Applicant must have rented or own premises where medical activity will be held.

A lot of entrepreneurs want to know whether a medical practice is possible not according to their place of registration. They would like to conduct business activity in another city. Providing medical services is possible in a few places. At the same time you must coordinate every location with the Ministry of Health of Ukraine.

If You want to know about medical equipment for doctors’ offices then you should read the order of the Ministry of Health no. 739. At the same time when speaking about equipment the Order of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine no. 158 dated the 11th of April 2005 is one of the most important documents for a dental license.

Conducting an economic activity of medical practice by a dental hygienist also has to be licensed. A hygienist provides a list of services which is the similar to the list of usual dentist, but simpler. Despite the fact that he uses almost the same medical, but methods are significantly decreased. Our company has a huge experience on getting licenses for dentists.  

The procedure of getting a license for medical practice

When term, cost and procedure of license obtainment are agreed Client signs legal services agreement with our firm. Once the  required documents are approved the Client:

  • issues power of attorney;
  • signes required documents.

Then our lawyers submit the documents to the Ministry of Health of Ukraine.

After receiving notification about positive result Client gets account details at the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine for paying an official license fee (the code of payment is 22011800).

If necessary, our lawyers can pay the official fee on behalf of the Client. In this case a Client just provides the necessary funds.

At the Client's request standard procedure of medical license obtainment can be changed to more convenient one (if possible).

Notification about changes in license documents/license reissuance Notifying Ministry of Health about changes in license documents arguably may be even more popular service than initial obtainment of license.

Such notification shouldn't be confused with license reissuance which can only take place when rights to private medical practice are inhereted.

The most popular changes are:

  • changing (adding or deleting) an address where medical practice is held/ or where a legal entity/individual is registered;
  • adding/replacement/stricking off doctors into or from the existing license;
  • submitting documents in accordance with the new form (after changing of licensing regulations).

Licensees should keep in mind that they have only one month for documents submission after the changes happened.

Forms of medical business structuring in Ukraine

Choice of the form of doing business is one of the first steps when You start medical business.

There are such forms as:

  1. An individual (sole trader).
  2. A legal entity (which can be in one of the forms listed below):
  • Limited Liability Company (LLC);
  • Private enterprise;
  • Joint-stock company;
  • Municipal company/state company;
  • Charitable organization;
  • Other types of legal entities.

Except organizational forms, legal entities must choose one or more healthcare institutions which will be considered their divisions:

  • Medical center;
  • Diagnostic center;
  • Medical and diagnostic center;
  • Infirmary;
  • Other types (the full list of institutions you can find here).
Some legal entities (it depends on their types of activity) can open infirmaries just for their workers. These infirmaries are not considered to be medical institutions.

It is possible to get a medical license not for a legal entity (LLC) but for a group of sole traders. They will conduct their activity according to the agreement of joint activity, for example.
Except multi-profile institutions, narrow-profile establishments are also very popular. For example, dermatovenereological, pediatric, ophthalmic hospitals call on our firm for getting licenses very often. It means that they will provide services only by one profile.

Licensing of conducting pre-travel and after-travel overview of drivers


The Licensing regulations also regulate the procedure of opening medical cabinets/points at enterprises. In particular, licensing of conducting pre-travel and after-travel overview of drivers is the most popular request.

In this case an enterprise gets a license for itself and sign labor agreements with medical personnel. It means that it is not established a separate healthcare institution. Medical services are provided only for workers of an enterprise.

You can read more detail information about opening of a medical point/cabinet in the article of our lawyer.

Putting several doctors into one cabinet

There are a lot of situations when a medical institution doesn’t have enough necessary square meters or enough number of cabinets. In this case there is a question whether they can put several doctors of different specialties into one cabinet.

This option is possible because there are no clear requirements for putting doctors. It is legal to put them into one cabinet if there is a correct work schedule and all necessary equipment.

Dentists usually use this option, putting two or more specialists into one cabinet at one stomatologic chair and making a correct working schedule. As follows you can make the same with other doctors but keep in mind that there should be all necessary equipment for each of them. 

Getting a medical license without medical education 

Nowadays every entrepreneur can get a medical license without medical education according to the new Licensing regulations. At the same time it doesn't mean that any individual has a right to treat people by himself. He must comply with the following requirements:
  • hire qualified personnel of specific specialties;
  • rent or own approved premises, equipment.
It should be noted that in the past only doctors could get this license. 

As of today sole practitioners cannot do surgeries (except surgical dentistry). This is the main disadvantage to choose individual as a form of doing medical business.
