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.
