The right to health insurance represents one of basic human rights. The system of health care cannot meet all the wants and needs of the patients, because the needs and wants of the patients have a continuous growth and the means of financing are becoming smaller. The purpose of the work is to show a combined system of financing (capitation and diagnostic groups) is financially sustainable, ensures an increase of physical and effective availability of health care, leading to an advance of quality of health care as an increase of effectiveness and efficiency in providing health services. Methods that have been used are: comparative law method, deductive method based on the method of abstraction, the statistical method, an inductive method, comparison method and methods of exemplary analysis of problems of public financing. It is impossible to define adequate health standards and the most functional model of financing health care with the purpose of a wholesome and total achievement of rights coming from mandatory health insurance.
