BackgroundBackground

In 1994, Slovakia’s health insurance system changed from a unitary system, with just one State-owned health insurance company, to a pluralistic model in which public and private bodies coexist.

All health insurance bodies (both public and private) provide coverage for compulsory health insurance to Slovak residents.
