Medical Treatment in Romania

In case you find yourself in need of medical assistance, you can go to any authorized medical unit, public or private. Some private health insurance companies will refer you to a specific clinic or hospital that they have a contract with. You will be issued a medical bill, stating all the procedures, interventions, medication, etc. Within 30 days, your health insurance company should cover the related expenditures. This means that, in case your insurance company has a contract with the medical unit you received treatment from, the bill will be settled between the insurance company and the medical unit. You won’t have to pay anything. In case the medical unit doesn’t have a contract with your insurance company, you will have to pay the bill and apply for a refund from the insurance company; you should receive your money within 30 days. Ask your insurance company to give you the list of all the medical units they are working with. It is important to note that, should any emergency/disease occur, you will need valid identification and residence documents in order to get proper medical assistance.
