Change in Health Insurance of US Self-emloyed

Last Updated: Monday, 05 December 2016 13:29

In connection with increasing number of questions we would like to point out again that the Czech-US social security agreement covers also the area of health insurance as of 1st May 2016. One of the consequences of this change is that American citizens – self-employed in the Czech Republic (“živnostenský list”) are to be insured in the public health insurance system starting from 1st May 2016 even if they do not have permanent residence in the Czech Republic.
