4.2 Entitlement and coverage

Costs for all COVID-19-related services should be covered under the current emergency situation, to be billed against HIFs.

In normal circumstances, all uninsured patients should themselves fully pay for any health service used. On the 7 May, amendments were made to the Law on Healthcare Insurance in order to cover the financing of healthcare for citizens without insurance in RS. During the COVID-19 crisis in BIH, citizens and non-citizens (migrants, asylum seekers) of BIH were either explicitly (decision of RS authorities) or implicitly (FBIH) granted access to all COVID-19 services free of charge.
