Liechtenstein Healthcare
 
 
 

General

If you or any of your dependants are suddenly taken ill or have an accident during a visit to an EEA country or Switzerland, free or reduced-cost necessary treatment is available – in most cases on production of a valid European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). Each country has different rules about state medical provision. In some, treatment is free. In many countries you will have to pay part or all of the cost, and then claim a full or partial refund.

The EHIC gives access to state-provided medical treatment only and the scheme gives no entitlement to medical repatriation costs, nor does it cover ongoing illnesses of a non-urgent nature, so comprehensive travel insurance is advised. Note that the EHIC replaces the Form E111, which will no longer be valid after 31 December 2005. Some restrictions apply, depending on your nationality. All other international travelers are strongly advised to take out full medical insurance before departure.Please note that Swiss nationals and people who do not have UK, EU or EEA nationality are not covered by the EHIC in Liechtenstein.

You can see any doctor covered by a contract with the public healthcare scheme. You will have to pay a standard fee. There is no state dental treatment, and you will have to pay the costs of private treatment in full.
There is only one hospital in Liechtenstein, but the standard of medical facilities is very good. The competent authority should approve your admission, although no approval is needed in an emergency. More information can be obtained from Amt für Volkswirtschaft (National Office of Economy), Austrasse 15, 9490 Vaduz.

As of 2002, there were approximately 8.3 hospital beds per 1,000 people. A program of preventive medicine, introduced in 1976, provides regular examinations for children up to the age of 10.
