Hi,

I put the details of mine up on another thread.. I'll see if I can find it and either direct you to it or copy the info over. I have Bulgarian Private Health Insurance for myself and my son. Its a no questions asked Policy and works out at about 130pounds per year.

Hi found it,

A few extra points to add to this. There is a 2 month wait before you can put in your first claim and they need copies of your temp residence form, the one with your ID number on it, or a copy of the new ID card, plus address and passport number. I'm not sure which area you will be moving too, but my guy covers the whole VT region, but i'm sure he could put you in touch with someone in your region.

Also, they put the group together, so don't worry you don't have to find 20 people. I've not used it yet, but when my Bulgarian friends read about it they signed up into the same group as me..

I have the policy details if you would like me to email them to you, just drop me a PM.





Just to let you know that there is now insurance cover in bulgaria that will over ex-pats, Austrian. I'm about to take it out. After spending a nightmare time trying to get my son onto the system here (he was born here), I have decided to go private, and the mad thing is that if you find that you need to use the doctors a lot, it can work out cheaper than paying into the system here and a damn side cheaper than pay as you go.

The cover is fully comp and starts at 10,000 lev a year cover under three headings. Single, family and group. A child under 12 has to go into a group. Group cover is also has no questions on past or current health problems. You claim back 80% of your expenses for everything, GP, perscription, hospital stays, tests, transport etc. .There are some coveates to that.

Individual cover starts at 420 lev a yr. Group at 268 lev. I believe that anyone can be in a group as long as there are 20 people or more in it. I've opted for the group cover for myself and son.

For the same cover Bupa was the only comparable company at 750 pounds per year, with tons and tons of exclusions. i.e. full history needed and no maternity cover or meds paid for.



If you pay into the system here you still have to pay for your meds, which if you tend to get a lot of colds or have kids ends up costing a lot of money here, as after each visit to a doctor who tends to give you a list a 6 meds here in BG.

PM me if you want the borkers details, he does speak a little english and is in the VT region.
