Our University can help you with health insurance for your stay in the Czech Republic. If you are interested, don't hesitate to contact the International Office.

There are two varieties of commercial health insurance: comprehensive medical insurance and basic medical insurance.

Basic medical insurance covers essential treatment and hospitalization at any public healthcare facility in the Czech Republic, which cannot be postponed. This insurance is recommended for individuals who do not fall under the public health insurance system and who are not planning to stay longer than 90 days in the Czech Republic. The insurance covers costs incurred due to an accident or sudden illness in the Czech Republic, including repatriation to your home country or to the country where the foreigner has legal residence. Legally, the minimum coverage must be EUR 60 000, excluding any excess payable by the insured person.

Comprehensive medical insurance is suitable for foreigners who intend to stay in the Czech Republic for 90 days or longer and are not covered by the public health insurance system. This health insurance for foreigners is similar to public health insurance. It provides preventive and dispensary health care, including care concerning pregnancy and childbirth.

Currently there are seven insurance companies that provide comprehensive health insurance for foreigners:

The insurance offered by these companies varies in price, the list of contracted doctors (where you don't pay for treatment in cash), and the time it takes for you to get back the medical treatment expenses.
