St. Petersburg manufacturers of orthopedic shoes will file a complaint with the FAS and the Prosecutor's Office

The Pantry Health Company will file a complaint against the actions of the Social Insurance Fund of St. Petersburg (FSS) with the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) and the Prosecutor's Office. 

According to the director general of the manufacturer, Boris Lipner, the FSS of St. Petersburg artificially limits the range of companies in which parents can purchase orthopedic shoes for children. According to Lipner, this state of affairs infringes on the rights of parents, because according to the order of the Ministry of Health and Social Development No. 823н, beneficiaries can apply for compensation for the purchase of shoes to any licensed manufacturer.

“The Social Insurance Fund lobbies for two private enterprises: the ORTO-S company and the Orthopedic Shoe Factory. Parents have to buy shoes from these companies, but they are of inadequate quality and are out of date, ”Lipner said.

According to parents, children have to be transported across the city to order shoes for them by individual standards. In addition, the shoes are made 2-4 of the month, and during this time the child manages to grow.

Alexander Cheryukanov, representative of the social policy committee, answers all claims with the fact that only 2 firms won the competition for the right to sell orthopedic shoes. At the same time Cheryukanov noted that manufacturers are not required to participate in competitions, and the FSS in any case will pay compensation to parents. It is reported by baltinfo.ru.
