Medical services worth €11 million were provided to those insured by the Estonian Health Insurance Fund (EHIF) abroad last year, marking a €2 million increase over 2016 figures.

Scheduled medical treatment abroad, or treatment of patients who could not be offered the necessary forms of treatment in Estonia, amounted to €4.8 million, EHIF said.

The cost of services rendered to people who experienced a health problem while abroad, meanwhile, totaled €6.3 million.

EHIF also paid altogether €3.3 million for ten high-cost treatment cases during the year. These included bone marrow transplant surgeries, liver and heart transplant surgeries as well as heart surgery on a newborn.
