Patients from BiH can be treated in Turkey free of charge?

hospitalThe health care sector in BiH is facing certain problems.

Among the problems are lack of financial resources, insufficient infrastructure and the lack of medical personnel for treatment of certain serious diseases.

However, many people still do not know that since the 2014, the Health Insurance and Reinsurance Institute of FBiH along with the Ministry of Health of FBiH, addopted Regulations on sending insured persons for medical treatment abroad.
