Estonian Health Insurance
Permanent residents of Estonia and the ones living in Estonia on the basis of temporary residence permit or right of residence for whom social tax is paid are entitled to health insurance. Health Insurance system is financed from mandatory social tax, which is currently 33%.
Estonia is using a solidary health insurance system: all insured persons get the same kind of medical care irrespective of the size of their contribution, personal health risks or age.
95% of population is insured and the benefit package is quite wide. Estonian Health Insurance Fund finds partners (hospital and clinics) through public tendering who provide services to insured customers based on their price list that is going to get reimbursed to the hospital. The tenders are open to all participants who match the criteria.
