Liechtenstein has a well-developed health care system and high standards in hospitals and medical services. The country has no special vaccination regulations. European health card applies in line with EU/EEA countries. However, travel insurance is recommended as supplementary insurance
European health cards are basically in line with EU/EEA countries, but since the health care system is heavily privatized, a number of health institutions require you to pay for on-site services, despite the presentation of European health insurance cards. One must then contact the Norwegian or Swiss authorities themselves to get the expenses reimbursed. Not all health services are reimbursed, as deductibles are imposed.
Travel insurance is recommended as supplementary insurance. The health insurance card does not replace ordinary travel insurance on travel in Europe. The card only covers disease treatment in EU/EEA countries. The card does not cover extra travel expenses because you have become ill or have suffered an accident. It also does not cover expenses related to loss of valuables, lost luggage or other arrangements that you can get through a regular travel insurance policy.
You are responsible for taking out travel insurance when you travel abroad. It is important that you check that your travel insurance applies to the area you are traveling to.
European health insurance card gives you the right to receive health care in emergency situations (accidents and the like) and to cover expenses for necessary health care in EU/EEA countries. What is meant by necessary health care depends on what kind of health care is involved and how long your stay is intended to last. You have the right to the health services that are necessary in order to continue your stay or journey in a medically sound manner. You have the right to cover health care expenses according to the rules of your country of residence. If it is common for those living in the country to have to pay deductibles, one must also do so as a tourist. Read more about European health insurance card on Helfo’s website.
