Health insurance for employees consists of mandatory health insurance, defined by the law on health insurance. As an integrated part of social contributions, even though the individual employees are defined as contributors, employers calculate and paying health insurance contributions on behalf of the employee. As with the pension contribution, payment is based on the gross wage, respecting the minimal and maximum base for the social contribution calculation. Currently, it is set at 7.5% of the gross wage for the employee. The transfers are directed to the fund for health insurance as the state-managed public health system. The average monthly contribution
for the Health Fund was €33 (Health Fund 2019 Annual Report). The health contributors can contribute and cover the health insurance for the family members (spouse), dependent until 18, or dependent in the process of higher education until 26.
