Visits to the therapist and in-patient treatment are free of charge. You will have to pay for the rest of the services and medicines. But the prices for them are minimal:

  • for a visit to a specialized doctor by referral of a therapist – 6 euros
  • for laboratory analysis – 1 euro
  • for a prescription drug – 1 euro (regardless of its cost)
  • for visiting the hospital in case of accidents and emergencies – 10 euros

For paid services, a so-called “ceiling” of prices has been introduced. For most of the users of GESY services, it is 150 euros per year. For low-income pensioners, recipients of the minimum guaranteed income and children under 18, it is 75 euros.
