Summary: Health Care in Veszprem: Locate providers, hospitals, and medical centers to find the best health services available for expats and nomads.

The healthcare system in Veszprem offers both public and private options for residents and expats alike. The public healthcare system, known as the National Health Insurance Fund (OEP), provides comprehensive coverage for Hungarian citizens and residents, while private healthcare facilities offer additional options for those seeking specialized care or shorter wait times.

Hungary's Healthcare System

In Hungary, the public healthcare system is managed by the National Health Insurance Fund (OEP), which provides coverage for Hungarian citizens and residents, including foreigners with a valid residence permit. Public hospitals in Veszprem, such as the Veszprem County Csolnoky Ferenc Hospital, are generally well-equipped and staffed by qualified professionals. However, due to limited resources and high demand, wait times for non-emergency procedures can be long, and the quality of care may vary. For serious medical emergencies and major surgeries, many people recommend using private hospitals, which typically offer more advanced facilities and shorter wait times. Expats and digital nomads are allowed to use the public healthcare system in Hungary, but many choose to use private hospitals for their healthcare needs.

Hospitals and Clinics for Expats in Veszprem

Some recommended hospitals and clinics in Veszprem include:

  • Veszprem County Csolnoky Ferenc Hospital (public) - located in Veszprem
  • Dr. Kenessey Albert Hospital (public) - located in Balatonf├╝red, approximately 25 km from Veszprem
  • Medicover Private Hospital (private) - located in Budapest, approximately 110 km from Veszprem

For specialized medical care and surgeries, expats in Veszprem may need to travel to larger cities such as Budapest, where there are more private hospitals and clinics available.

Emergency Services in Veszprem

Ambulance services are available in Veszprem, and can be reached by dialing 112 or 104. Response times may vary depending on the location and severity of the emergency, but generally, ambulances arrive within a reasonable time frame.

Health Insurance Companies in Veszprem

Popular private health insurance companies in Veszprem include Allianz, Generali, and Union. These companies offer a range of coverage options for individuals and families, including plans tailored to expats and digital nomads. While some expats may choose to use local health insurance providers, many opt for specialized expat health insurance providers that offer coverage for medical care both in Hungary and abroad.
