Frequently asked questions

Questions concerning covid-19

I have arranged Foreigners´ Medical Insurance. If I get ill with covid-19, will you cover all the care related to it?
Yes. All the acute healthcare related to covid-19 treatment is covered by Foreigners´ Medical Insurance of Pojišťovna VZP, a.s., including hospitalisation. Non-acute healthcare in connection with this illness will be covered by comprehensive medical insurance, within the scope of insurance terms and conditions.
I have arranged Foreigners´ Medical Insurance. Does my insurance also cover PCR tests and antigen testing?
PCS tests are covered only if they are prescribed by a hygiene station or by a doctor, we do not cover voluntary PCR testing. Voluntary PCR testing can be covered from “Premium healthcare services”, that is included in most foreigners´ comprehensive medical insurance policies.
Antigen testing (that is free only for those insured by the public medical insurance system) is not possible to cover. However clients can undergo testing as self-payers. In case clients have a valid insurance policy for foreigners´ comprehensive medical insurance with a stated limit for “Premium”, it is possible to ask for a refund for antigen testing up to the stated limit.
Is it possible to arrange supplementary insurance that would cover voluntary testing?
Voluntary testing can be covered by „Premium“ that is included in all insurance policies of Foreigners´ Comprehensive Medical Insurance PLUS. As for Foreigners´ Comprehensive Medical Insurance Exclusive, „Premium“ is included in most insurance policies arranged from 1. June 2020.
I am interested in vaccination against covid-19. Will vaccination be covered by my insurance?
At the moment, registration for vaccination in the Czech Republic is possible only for participants in public medical insurance. If the conditions change in the future, Pojišťovna VZP, a.s. will react, and under agreed conditions, vaccination will be covered by insurance.
I will study in the Czech Republic. My university requires a certificate certifying that my insurance will cover covid-19. Can you issue such a certificate?

Is the cost of medicines paid directly to the client under Foreigners‘ Medical Insurance?
A client pays for the medicines he/she purchases in a pharmacy by him/herself and subsequently requests the insurance company to reimburse him/her, but this is only possible if the payment was more than CZK 100.
