Hello All.

I work for a Romanian company,
I got a stupid flue and wanted to go to the doctors, I got a paper from HR that I work here so I can find a doctor.
I went to the doctor but he couldn't find my health insurance registration.
So I contacted HR now it seems they did not register me anywhere so I'm simply not insured here and HR says I have to find my own insurance as it's not "mandatory for them to register foreigners"
I have a long term residence (CNP) and would like to know if it's true that they don't have to insure you if you work for a Romanian company as EXPAT.

To me it sounds weird.

Regards J.

I have exactly same issue however I was told by HR that online registration for foreigners does not work in Romania although the part of my wage goes somewhere every month. After some investigation they recomended me to go personaly to CNAS and complete the registration at the office, which I did not so far but I am planning to do so this or next week.
I will let you know how it ended up.

I have spoken to my HR.
I explained them that it's their job to inform me about these issues beforehand and not when i have to see a doc for what reason ever.
My HR went to CNAS and registered me there herself.

Everything is sorted now.
Depending on the company you work for it's really advised to check if you are registered!.
They will be paying the fee but they won't register you themselfs (Unless multinational, or Private insurance)
