This information will be useful for those Ukrainians, who received a special visa of temporary protection in Czech Republic.
After getting a visa of temporary protection, Ukrainians gain free medical insurance, covered by the government. It will be free only for 150 days after getting a visa. That means that after this term you need to pay medical insurance by yourself.
However, not all individuals are required to pay insurance by themselves. Here are exceptions, where medical insurance is paid by the government:
There are other rules for individuals from 18 to 64 years old, which DO NOT need to pay insurance by themself either:
Self-employed or other categories of people, which are not included in the list above, need to pay medical insurance in the company where they are registered by themself. You need to inform your medical insurance company about all the changes in your personal information or employment status. The deadline is 8 days after the 150 days term from getting a visa of temporary protection.
