/ Health insurance in Poland - aren't people insured and covered by default?
Now when watching Londyńczycy there is this case of a girl who have to send money back to Poland, so that her sister can pay for an operation for her baby.
Now I'm wondering if this is common in Poland? Are people in Poland enforced by the government to have a health insurance? And does such an insurance covers all needed life-saving operations?
In my country people are
enforced to have a health insurance. And as far as I know, every insurance pays for medical care which is "needed" for a person to stay healthy.
As well hospitals have some deposits to help illegal (uninsured) people is they have something. In general I don't think that a hospital would not operate a baby because his/her parents are not properly insured.
