Health Care System in Cyprus
Understand what to expect from the medical system in Cyprus if you're moving there to live and work or to retire...
In Cyprus, health care is provided by private practitioners and clinics as well as government medical services. Government medical services may be used by anyone who chooses to do so; reduced rates are available to qualifying patients. Private care is paid for by the patient (or by their private health insurer).
The Cyprus Ministry of Health (MOH) administers the program and funding is obtained through general taxation. Small fees apply for each treatment, with reduced rates available to Medical Card holders.
Some trade unions and employers offer cover to members/employees under a medical fund that provides partial or complete coverage of medical expenses.
