Tourist health care

Pursuant to the contractual obligations with the HZZO (Croatian Health Insurance Fund), the Region’s health institutions provide services both for national and foreign tourists staying in the area of the Istrian Region. Should the need for immediate medical assistance be required, all tourists are entitled to health care under the same conditions as Croatian insured parties provided they have a valid European Health Insurance Card (EKZO). Domestic tourists access health care on the basis of a valid HZZO card.
There are also private physicians and dentists where a full price is charged for medical services.
