Foreigners who are resident and working or studying in Hungary, as well as refugees and their dependants, are considered insured under the National Health Insurance Fund (Országos Egészségpénztár Penztar – OEP). Patients may be required to make a contribution towards the cost of medical care, however, as public funding for medical services is often insufficient.

This section features information about how to register for health insurance, locate a doctor or pharmacy, and pay for medical care. In addition, there are details on the services provided for new mothers and babies in Hungary, as well as a list of vital telephone numbers that can be contacted in case of emergency.
