Please enquire at your local health insurance company to find out if there is a signed bilateral social insurance agreement between your home country and Croatia, and if yes, ask for the bilingual form (tiskanica) to be filled in and stamped by your health insurance company. The form should then be presented at the Croatian Health Insurance Company (Hrvatski zavod za zdravstveno osiguranje), which will issue a health insurance document valid in Croatia (bolesnički list). According to the currently available information, such forms can be obtained for the following CEEPUS countries: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Macedonia, Slovenia, Serbia, and Czech Republic.
A valid bilateral agreement also exists between Croatia and Poland, but Polish citizens only need to present their passport to receive free urgent medical care.
Citizens of the following CEEPUS countries can also use the EU health card as the basis of their health insurance in Croatia: Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovenia.
It is also recommendable to have travel insurance covering the entire duration of your stay, especially if you are a citizen of one of the CEEPUS countries that have not been listed above.
