16 March 2020. Due to inquiries from foreign clients in connection with the current epidemiological situation, Pojišťovna VZP, a.s. (hereinafter referred to as the “insurance company”) hereby issues a statement for clients – foreigners, who have taken out foreigners´ medical insurance with our insurance company.
We would like to assure clients who have taken out any foreigners´ medical insurance product (both comprehensive and basic) that, under all of the above-mentioned foreigners´ medical insurance products, the insurance company will cover all medical care provided to you in connection with the corona virus at any of more than 5,000 contractual healthcare facilities in the Czech Republic. This will guarantee that our clients have at their disposal the maximum availability of healthcare anywhere in the Czech Republic in any medical field. We will also pay for COVID-19 testing on the recommendation of your doctor or hygiene centre.
As the market leader in the field of foreigners´ medical insurance and a subsidiary of VZP CR, Pojišťovna VZP, a.s., stands by its clients even at a time when most of the world´s population is at risk of a new type of viral disease. In order to improve the quality of our clients´ services, our insurance company is increasingly communicating directly with healthcare facilities in order to provide our clients with the best possible care and the widest and most accessible services.
Foreigners´ medical insurance is also suitable for Czech citizens who have been working abroad long-term and were forced to return to the Czech Republic in connection with the corona virus and who are not participants of the public medical insurance system.
We believe that the current situation will soon calm down and that we will handle all the challenges together!
