HEALTH CARE

If you are a citizen of another EU or EEA Member State and you have acquired your status in the compulsory health insurance in Croatia at the Croatian Health Insurance Fund (HZZO), registration as well as determination of injury at work or occupational disease will be performed in accordance with the Croatian legislation.

If you have compulsory health insurance in another EU/EEA Member State, and during your stay in Croatia (for example, if you are a posted worker) you experience an injury at work or if an occupational disease is diagnosed to you for the first time, the registration and determination of injury at work / occupational disease will be carried out in accordance with the legislation of the competent Member State in which you are insured.

For this reason, the competent regional office or branch office of the Croatian health Insurance Fund will ask your competent health insurance holder from your home country to issue the E123 form (“Certificate of entitlement to benefits from the insurance for injuries at work and occupational disease”).

In the same way, the foreign health insurance holder will request the issuance of the same form for a Croatian worker who, during a period of temporary work in another Member State, experiences an injury at work or is diagnosed with an occupational disease for the first time.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Your health insurance holder will issue the requested form if, following the procedure carried out in accordance with the regulations of your home country, the holder recognizes your injury at work or occupational disease incurred in Croatia.

Based on the E123 form, the Croatian Health Insurance Fund will issue a health insurance certificate on the basis of which you will be able to exercise all rights to health care from the system of occupational injuries or occupational diseases in Croatia, at the expense of your health insurance holder.

In this case, your health care services will be provided in the form of health care for “regular” injury/disease.
