It is very important to have some kind of medical insurance lined up before your move, whether it is through your employer or with a private supplier.
The best medical insurance is usually available through your employer. The terms depend on the individual deal the employer made with the insurance company of their choice.
The standard services include coverage of patient contributions for family doctor and specialist visits, as well as hospital stays and ambulatory care. Also costs for vaccinations and rehabilitation services are included in the basic packages. Additional services usually include reimbursement for medicines, dental care, and optician services.

With so much to deal with before leaving your home country, (taxes, moving house, paperwork etc.) the careful planning of your expatriation to Sofia 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 Bulgaria. So, before leaving, make sure you have appropriate cover!
