Accessing Healthcare in Slovenia
Competent health insurance institute:
Zavod za zdravstveno zavarovanje Slovenije (ZZZS)
The Health Insurance Institute of Slovenia (HIIS)
Miklošičeva cesta 24
All units offer information on health insurance in Slovenia, as well as information about medical practitioners and health care institutions that have contractual agreements with the ZZZS, making it possible to access medical services with the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), or a Certificate, which is a substitute for the European Health Insurance card.
The insured persons can implement their rights deriving from compulsory health insurance at institutions or surgeries that operate within the framework of the public health care service.
The framework of the public health care service consists of public health care and other institutions, and private practice doctors and other health care practitioners, incorporated into the network on equal terms on the basis of concessions.
