By law, every person on the territory of the Czech Republic must be insured, that is, have valid and paid health insurance. In the Czech Republic, there are 2 forms of health insurance: public and contractual.
Citizens of the country, as well as foreigners with permanent residence in the Czech Republic or officially employed persons can count on public insurance.
All economically active residents of the country deduct part of the funds from their wages in favor of the health insurance fund (the employer makes deductions for employees, individual entrepreneurs pay insurance on their own).
Foreigners (individual entrepreneurs, non-working family members of foreigners and students) must conclude an agreement on commercial health insurance in the Czech Republic, which in turn can also be of 2 types:
- basic first aid insurance
- comprehensive health insuranc
