The acute and emergency health insurance covers elementary medical expenses in case of acute health problems. It includes assistance services and contains lower covering limits of medical care than Comprehensive health insurance for foreigners. Acute and emergency health insurance is usually arranged for less than 90 days, so for the time of short-term residence in the Czech Republic (short-term visa). In case you have sudden health problems, acute and emergency health care is provided in every medical facility. It means that it is not necessary if the medical facility which you visit belongs to the list of contractual healthcare facilities of your Insurance company.
This medical insurance covers all medical examination including acute health problems. It contains higher limits of covering and it is also a necessary condition for obtaining long-term visa for foreigners or long-term residence in the Czech Republic. Comprehensive health insurance for foreign nationals includes dental care with higher limits and extended care. It also contains higher cover limits for medicaments. We warn you, the limit of covering varies in every insurance company. Usually the higher the limit of covering is, the higher the scale of medical care. This insurance also fulfills conditions of the Czech Law par. 1 of the Act No. 326/1999 Coll., on Residence of Foreign Nationals. If you intend to stay in the Czech Republic for a longer time, certainly do not risk and pay extra for comprehensive health insurance for foreigners.
If you arrange health insurance for pregnant women it is always necessary to apply for Comprehensive health insurance with the package for pregnancy. Acute and emergency care does not cover medical care expenses connected with pregnancy. On the other hand comprehensive health insurance for foreign nationals provides all medical care for mothers and newborns. It contains a medical examination during the pregnancy, birth and also health care after.
If you prepare to travel to the Czech Republic on an exchange residence or a language course, which does not last more than 90 days, then you can apply for acute and emergency insurance for students. There is only one condition for applying which is to be between 15 – 26 years old.
