Answer this Question

When we asked expats in Prague if healthcare and health insurance are expensive in Prague, they wrote...

"Healthcare and health insurance in Pragueublic, can be considered relatively affordable compared to other European countries and the United States. Public healthcare is funded through mandatory health insurance contributions, which cover most medical services for Czech citizens and residents. However, the quality of public healthcare may vary, and waiting times can be long for certain treatments. Expats and visitors often opt for private healthcare, which offers better facilities, shorter waiting times, and English-speaking staff. Private healthcare can be more expensive, but it is still considered reasonably priced compared to other countries. Health insurance for private healthcare is available through various providers, and the cost depends on the coverage and individual needs. Overall, healthcare and health insurance in Prague are not excessively expensive, but private options can increase costs," explained one expat living in Prague, Czechia.
