CROATIAN HEALTH INSURANCE FUND
Our dental medicine practice has a contract with the Croatian Health Insurance Fund and the patients, who have chosen us to be the primary care dental providers, are entitled to the free primary care dental services, prescribed by the national standards as established by the Croatian Health Insurance Fund. The minimum standards of dental care and treatment include the root canal treatments, conventional dental fillings, tooth extractions, periodontal treatments and procedures, issuance of referral slips and writing prescriptions.
The Croatian Health Insurance Fund can cover for the costs of certain dental treatments. Unfortunately, these treatments are often insufficient to meet all the patient’s needs and wishes. That is the reason why, besides the basic treatments covered by the CHIF, we can also offer you a more sophisticated dental technology, materials and procedures, in order to provide you with the top-quality dental care.
The Croatian Health Insurance Fund can cover the partial costs of the preliminary phases in the preparation of any type of a denture, which reduces the overall costs of having the denture made for you. In addition, the Croatian Health Insurance Fund also covers the partial costs of making the prosthetic restoration itself, for patients over 65 years old as well as for supplemental health insurance beneficiaries.
