Who pays for the test?

Regarding the cancellation of the pandemic emergency, the right to one preventive PCR test a month for free ceased on May 5, 2022. Public health insurance pays only for diagnostic tests in case your physician evaluates your health state and issues you a request.

As of May 1, 2023, for diagnosing COVID-19 disease are predominantly used antigen tests. Testing with the PCR method is indicated only in rare and urgent cases. You do not need to pay anything for performing a diagnostic test based on the request from the physician.

Test without a request, so one based on your own request, is not covered by public healthcare insurance and you need to pay for it yourselves as self-payers.
