We asked expats in Poland if they have access to public healthcare in Poland. And, if they do have access, what is it like. They wrote...

"Yes, as a foreigner living in Poland, you will have access to public healthcare. The quality of care is generally good, with a wide range of services available. The public healthcare system is funded by the government and is free for all citizens and legal residents. The system is divided into two parts: the National Health Fund (NFZ) and the private sector. The NFZ provides basic healthcare services, while the private sector offers more specialized services. The public healthcare system is generally well-regarded and is considered to be one of the best in Europe," explained one expat living in Poland.
