What is the difference between private and public healthcare institutions?

/back.pngback

Public healthcare institutions are public institutions belonging to the Lithuanian national healthcare system. Provision of services for the persons covered by compulsory health insurance is free except in cases when certain medical tests or procedures are not paid for by the State Patient Fund

Private healthcare institutions work under a license issued by the Ministry of Health. These healthcare institutions provide paid services. Their prices are set according to an internal procedure. Some private health institutions have concluded agreements with Territorial Patient Funds whereby they apply discounts to the persons covered by compulsory health insurance and do not charge for the services provided. They may also have concluded agreements with private health insurance companies concerning a direct reimbursement of fees for healthcare services.
