Medical insurance and facilities

In the Czech Republic health insurance policies valid within EU are mostly recognized. Nevertheless you should check the validity of your health insurance prior to departure for the Czech Republic.

The Czech Republic has concluded bilateral agreements laying down provisions for the mutual provision free of charge of necessary and urgent health care to its nationals with the following European countries. For non-EU citizens, you'll generally have to pay cash (except in certain situations) and then get it back with your insurance provider afterwards,
