Hungary provides full medical coverage for all residents. Expats who are a resident and working or studying in Hungary are considered insured and are issued with a national health insurance card and a health insurance number by the National Health Insurance Fund.
There are also private insurance companies in Hungary for additional health insurance, and private hospitals that are available. Most state-employed doctors have private practices, which can be a lot more comfortable for their patients.
Most expats in Hungary have private healthcare through their work, which also included evacuation coverage in the case that a type of surgery or treatment cannot be performed in Hungary.

With so much to deal with before leaving your home country, (taxes, moving house, paperwork etc.) the careful planning of your expatriation to Budapest is an essential step. As far as healthcare is concerned, your local social security scheme won’t be accompanying you to your host country and, once abroad, you might be surprised by the care system you find in Hungary. So, before leaving, make sure you have appropriate cover!
