Slovenian - Health Insurance for UK / British Nationals

Below is explanation of health insurance laws/requirements and expectation in the Slovenian territory.

Non-residents of the UK can no longer claim the use of the EU Health Insurance Card (EUHIC)

The EUHIC is only available to UK residents going away on trips no longer of 2-months, permanent resident of UK and pay taxes within the UK.

As a foreigner working in Slovenia, you right to get health insurance is available once you are working for a company in Slovenia. Your company will then register you with ZZZS (Slovenian health Services) for basic insurance.
Once basic insurance is setup for you will then be able to get comprehensive health cover by applying for Advance Insurance through well know Slovenian Insurers in the country. Companies like Adriatic, Triglav to name a couple will be able to provide you with cover and typically cost just under 30-euros per month.

You can not claim or setup Basic insurance by yourself, unless the above condition is meet (you are working for a company) or you are married to a Slovenian national.

The only option to claim health insurance is to goto an external company like VZAJEMNA ( who can provide health insurance for foreigners.
