INCREASING THE AVAILABILITY OF PSYCHOSOCIAL SUPPORT

The contribution is intended for VZP ČR insured persons aged 7 and above, who are not in the process of re-registration to another health insurance company at the time of submitting the application for inclusion in the program / financial contribution.
The maximum amount of the contribution is CZK 5,000 for 10 sessions (CZK 500 / 1 session).
For sessions taken within the period from the date of issue of the voucher to 31 December 2023, it is possible to apply for the contribution until 31 December 2023.
