Hairfall treatment covered under public/private medical insurance in Poland?

3 Jan 2015 #1

I am very new in Poland, I am from Sri Lanka.

I have relocated her for my job and am covered under the medical insurance both private and public. I wanted to understand if these insurance will also cover the hair fall treatment?

If yes what is the procedure to get this covered? And how can i consult a doctor for this problem in Poland?

If you have private medical insurance, the better would be make use of it than use the public services. I think you need to contact with your insurance company, they will direct you.

In terms of public insurance - you can go to any dermatologist that (or whose clinic) has a contract with the National Health Fund (NFZ - you will see the characteristic NFZ logo near the entrance). To dermatologist you don't need any referral.

Thank you so much! As i am very new here, and we do not have this public insurance cover, i am thinking if this will just cover the fees for the dermatologist or also the medicines and vitamins that he will prescribe me?

You tell first that you are covered by the public insurance, then you say that you aren't. Decide :)

The public insurance covers visits at the doctor (including specialists - although sometimes there are queues for a few months, there are situations that somebody must go to the doctor private because otherwise, during the time of waiting, his/her sickness will get much worse), stays in hospitals, including operations and so on, also for example some basic dentist services (although limited, for example fillings without mercury are, AFAIK, free only for the front teeth), but does not cover medicines. There are only discounts for some prescribed ones, but generally speaking you have to pay for them.

I don't know what about the private insurance. You must ask at the insurance company or read the terms.
