This Students´ Health Centre, which has contracts with all insurance companies in the Czech Republic, provides preventive, diagnostic and curative care to all undergraduates.
Prague has several clinics providing health care for English-speaking clients that can provide a network of services from basic medical examination to accompanying a patient to the hospital. Please note, however, that these are usually commercial organizations that may charge a high fee. We recommend keeping the receipts for any payments so that you can apply for reimbursement from your home insurance company since such costs are not refundable within the Czech Republic. The institutions are as follows: (Please note this list is not exhaustive, other clinics may exist.)
