Radical changes in Czech health insurance: here’s what you need to know

The Czech health system has been put in the spotlight like never before in the last two years. The Covid pandemic has put the system under unprecedented pressure, which has led to a study of which areas are working and which are in need of reform.

As a result, a significant reform of the law on public health insurance came into force at the beginning of this year. The reform, drafted by the former Ministry of Health under former Minister Adam Vojtěch, contains dozens of amendments to the 61 sections of the law. These changes affect the provision of standard vaccinations, the use of new medicines, the provision of home care and reproductive medicines.

Here are four important changes that you should be aware of when the new system goes into effect.

Health insurance companies to cover more vaccines

A simpler system for obtaining specialist medicines

Reproductive health reforms

More powers for home nurses

Changes when visiting a dentist or orthodontist

Free lung cancer screening for those who quit smoking
