Information about healthcare available for European Health Insurance Card holders in Lithuania

Treatment, coverage & costs

Doctors

  • To take advantage of your European Health Insurance Card, you must consult a doctor at a healthcare institution that has a contract with one of the regional health insurance funds.
  • Treatment is free of charge if you show your European Health Insurance Card and passport.

Dentists

  • Dental care is free of charge if you consult a dentist who works under a contract with one of the territorial health insurance funds.
  • You will be charged for any materials used, e.g. fillings.
  • Around 80% of the dentists in Lithuania have a private practice, meaning that charges for their services are not reimbursed.

Hospital treatment

  • You can visit the accident and emergency department of any hospital in Lithuania. Show your European Health Insurance Card and your passport upon admission.
  • In all other cases, you will need a referral from a doctor. If you seek non-emergency hospital treatment without a referral, you will be charged the full cost.

  • The patient covers 10%, 20% or 50% of the cost of subsidised medicines.
