There are public and private healthcare institutions in Lithuania. All persons (both insured and not by compulsory health insurance) have access to public, municipal, as well as private health care institutions. The difference is that non-insured persons are required to pay for all healthcare services provided both in private and public, as well as municipal, healthcare institutions.
Private healthcare institutions work under a license issued by the Ministry of Health. These healthcare institutions provide paid services. Each private healthcare institution will have its own price list, so it’s advisable to ask about prices in advance. You’ll also find that English is more widely spoken in private healthcare institutions.
Important note: To register with a specific healthcare institution you will first need to be covered by compulsory health insurance, regardless of whether the healthcare institution in question is public or private.
