4 Reasons why not to buy the Emergency type

1] Emergency Health Insurance only covers the basic liability but no coverage for normal non-urgent visits to the hospital, doctor or dentist.

2] Most embassies only accept the Emergency Health Insurance for tourist purposes, but not for any other visa, such as a business visa!

3] Emergency Health Insurance is only suitable for the first visa, for extending a visa the Complex Care Health Insurance is a requirement.

4] The price difference between the Emergency type and Complex Care type of Insurance is usually only a few 100 (hundred) CZK per month - especially when there are discount offers.

Our recommendation: To avoid any visa- or coverage problems, take the Complex Care Insurance instead of the Emergency type.
