The article is devoted to the study of the definition of “financial security” in the health care system. It is established that the peculiarity of the health care sector is the multilevel and multi-purpose system, which has a hierarchical structure. The concept of “system” is considered, which is understood as a set of elements that have certain connections and properties, as well as has its own structure and internal organization. The author’s definition of the health care system is proposed – a set of components and their relationships, which are characterized by multilevel, organizational and functional subordination, their activities guarantee the availability and quality of medical services at the primary, secondary and tertiary levels, aimed at protection, preservation, strengthening the health of the population and ensuring the rational use of material, human and financial resources. The requirements that the health care system must meet are defined. The analysis of the definition of “financial security” given by scientists allowed to identify the main key aspects: search, attraction, formation and efficient use of financial resources accumulated by business entities and the state; existence of various forms of financial support: budget (state) financing, self-financing, crediting, charity, international technical assistance, investment, etc. The main forms of financial provision of health care in Ukraine are considered, including an additional source of funding – voluntary health insurance, which is not yet developed due to lack of positive experience of relations with insurance companies and low incomes, high cost of insurance companies, lack of motivating employers to develop and use this type of insurance. However, we are convinced that this is one of the effective ways to increase the efficiency of medical services.

Keywords: financial support, health care, system.
