Czechia has an outstanding health service which has been lauded as one of the best in Europe. These high standards coupled with the low cost has made the country very popular with medical tourists.
Czechia nationals and those working for a Czechia employer automatically qualify for state healthcare. Funding comes from contributions by both employees and employers. There are a number of approved insurance funds, all of which broadly provide the same level of cover. When seeking treatment, it’s important to make sure your provider covers this treatment.
On top of their contributions to health cover, Czechia residents and workers may have to cover part of the cost of treatment.
Individuals who do not qualify for the state healthcare system will have to arrange private healthcare and prove it to be if they want to remain in the country for longer than 90 days.
