Expat Healthcare Advice for Fonyod

Ask what the capabilities are. Ask for costs up front. If possible don't ask for a "formal bill" as this will increase your out of pocket substantially!

Emergency Medical Care in Fonyod

In my case the major medical facility is about 36 to 41 km (Siofok or Kaposvar). Emergency services are slow compared to the US and not so sure about the ambulance medic's qualifications but I tend to think it is less than in the US!

Expat Health Insurance in Hungary

I do have health insurance back in the US. However I discovered that if I ask for an "official" bill (understand one with the required AFA/VAT) then the price jumps disproportionately. Give you an example; I had a toothache and a little swelling. I found out which local dentist had an x-ray. He took an x-ray, relieved the swelling, prescribed antibiotics and recommended a root canal which he didn't do. The price was 10,000 forints (very cheap compared to the US). Figuring that I could file with my insurance company in the US, I asked for a "bill"! Big mistake; the price instantly chanced to 17,000 forints. So now for minor stuff I pay out of pocket!
