Healthcare in Slovenia Made Cheap and Easy With an EHIC
Healthcare in Slovenia
If you’re travelling to Slovenia as a British national, it’s important to be aware of the procedures and protocols that are adopted by the country’s healthcare system in the event that you find yourself in need of treatment. Slovenia is a country whose tourism market is growing year on year, and from a tourist’s point of view it is vital that the correct research is done into the matter in order to ensure you do not end up paying for private healthcare or hit with extra charges â€œ many of which can result in huge bills needing to be settled before returning home.
Fortunately, the healthcare system in Slovenia is extremely efficient. As a publicly-run service, Slovenian nationals are able to access care across the board although small charges and concessions are often required due to the fact funding from the government is comparably low when cpmpred to other European countries.
As a British tourist, if you have are travelling with a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), you will be able to access the same level of care as a Slovenian national with other institutions, private physicians and various other private service providers often falling within this remit. These charges will remain relatively small upon presenting your EHIC to the healthcare attendants, as long as you make it known that you want public care at all possible junctures.
Using an EHIC in Slovenia
The way the Slovenian healthcare system is broken down means that the primary and public services are all organised locally in an effort to ensure that the whole population can access care without discrimination. In Slovenian culture, it is custom that everyone in need or urgent medical attention or the emergency services must be able to access this. This will also extend to you and with an EHIC you will not be expected to pay a lot of excess charges.
It’s important to remember, however, that while your EHIC protects you from the majority of private rates, you will not be completely exempt from fees (unless the care you require is for a small child or elderly person). Always be clear with the health authorities of your position and your wishes regarding public care and it is more than likely you will be suitably accommodated.
