Health care

Understanding the healthcare system and foreign laws can be a challenge. What do I do to become a part of public health care? Is the treatment for free or do I pay for it? Where should I go when I feel sick…

Quick overview at the beginning:

  • It is compulsory to have health insurance coverage in order to get a visa and live in the Czech Republic.
  • EU citizens can obtain the same public health insurance as Czechs.
  • Non-EU citizens who have been living in the Czech Republic for five years can enter the public health system. Otherwise, they can require private health coverage.

General Practitioner

Find out which hospitals and doctors your insurance provider has an agreement with. If there is a contract between the two, this may or may not affect whether you have to pay up front, as well as the amount you pay.

It is recommended for patients to choose and register with one general practitioner.

Dentist

In the Czech Republic, the public health insurance covers up to two checkups a year. When your tooth needs a treatment there might be some charges but it always depends on the level of the cavity and the type of filling that is used.

It is advised to register with a dentist (even before you need any work done), to ensure that you are accepted quickly if acute problems occur. If you are not registered, it is possible that a dentist will not accept you for treatment.
