Watch a webinar: Commercial health insurance explained

If you’re paying for your health insurance, watch a webinar with an insurance expert on how to get the most out of the benefits this type of insurance grants you.

Since last year, you can buy your insurance only at Pojišťovna VZP a.s. – the sole option for foreigners who have no access to the public health insurance system. We invited Tomáš Ryšánek from, to answer the most frequent questions and look into various life situations such as

  • looking for a doctor
  • reimbursement
  • getting insured as a pregnant woman, young child
  • changing employment
  • or travelling.

Did you know that if the proposal made by the Senate passes, not only will the monopoly of Pojišťovna VZP a.s. (PVZP) as the sole available commerical health insurance end but, hopefully, other improvements should follow such as doubling the obligatory minimal coverage in the comprehensive commercial health insurance plan or a possibility for nonEU newborns born in the Czech Repablic to remain in the public health insurance longer than it is currently allowed?

In the video, you will also learn about a brand new medical service the largest commerical health insurance company has only introduced to the Czech market recently or about a Superior Standard Bonus that most clients of PVZP are not aware of. And much more.  Watch the recording here:
