• How can I get to the medication?

    • Prescription-only medicines can be prescribed by any doctor (within their prescription limitations) if the patient pays for them in full. Medicines covered by health insurance can only be prescribed by contracted doctor (VšZP insurance company). However, the entitlement differs depending on the refugee status (medication for urgent care for transit refugees, medication for necessary care for asylum seekers, and full health care for employed and insured refugees). In case of some prescription medicines a co-payment will be still needed.
    • If you don´t know how to find a doctor who will prescribe the specific medication, try contact the Inpatient Emergency Service, which operates on weekdays from 16.00 - 22.00 and on weekends or holidays from 07.00 - 22.00. Where to go
