Guide To Health Insurance in Poland

Whether you’re relocating to Poland permanently or just looking for a new international health insurance provider, either way, it’s imperative you know what’s available both in terms of insurance provision, and the country’s healthcare system.

Poland has an estimated population of 38,074,000 and male life expectancies at 71 and female life expectancies at 80. The county’s healthcare system centres around an all-inclusive insurance scheme with the state providing subsidised healthcare to all Polish citizens who are covered by the general health insurance. There are a range of private hospitals nationwide where you can seek medical attention if you do not wish to be treated in a state-run facility. Cover you and your family with international health insurance is the best way to ensure you receive the care you want if and when you need it.

In Poland the hospitals and suppliers of medical services answer to the Polish Ministry of Health, which is accountable for the healthcare system’s everyday administration, the standards of patient care and hygiene. It also scrutinises all the medical practice that occurs in the country, in order to maintain and improve the standards of Poland’s healthcare.

At present Poland’s healthcare system is experiencing some radical transformation and the majority of the country’s hospitals are due to be renovated. Because of this, many medical centres have already seen an improvement in their healthcare facilities and are being fully modernised.

Poland’s dental care is of a high quality practising the most modern techniques within the strictly regulated healthcare system. The majority of dental clinics offer good quality services for reasonable prices.

Canada’s universal health-care system

All Canadian citizens and permanent residents may apply for public health insurance. When you have it, you do not pay for most health-care services as health care is paid for through taxes. When you use public health-care services, you must show your health insurance card to the hospital or medical clinic.

Each province and territory has their own health insurance plan. Make sure you know what your plan covers.

All provinces and territories will provide free emergency medical services, even if you do not have a government health card. Restrictions may apply depending on your immigration status. If you have an emergency, go to the nearest hospital. If you go to a walk-in clinic in a province or territory where you are not a resident, you might be charged a fee.

Waiting period to get public health insurance

Residents in some provinces must wait a certain period (up to three months) before receiving government health insurance (contact your provincial or territorial ministry of health to know how long you will need to wait). Make sure you have private health insurance to cover your health-care needs during this waiting period.

Getting a health card

To get health care in Canada, you will need a health insurance card from the province or territory where you live. You must show this card each time you get medical services.
