Having a baby in the Czech Republic?
Pregnancy and Maternity Coverage
VZP complete Prenatal, Postnatal and New Born Care
I have public health insurance card, is my pregnancy covered?
If you are holder of a green public health insurance card your pregnancy and birth of your baby is covered, however the postnatal care of the newborn is not covered under your insurance. To have your baby covered for postnatal care, you have to purchase our Newborn plan/Maternity plan.

Consider the following when planning to give birth:
Who will pay the doctor and hospital bills?
