The Reciprocal Health Care Agreement (RHCA) we have with Malta may cover some of your medical costs in Malta’s public health system.
It must be:
- essential care that can’t wait till you get home
- within 6 months after the day you arrive
- care in a government hospital - this includes:
- nursing care
- hospital out-patient care provided by:
- specialists in government service
- care at a health centre from a public doctor or nurse
- ambulance travel to hospital in an emergency
- necessary immediate dental care provided by government hospital
What it doesn’t cover
It doesn’t cover:
- dental work that isn’t urgent - for example fillings
- dental prostheses and appliances - your travel insurance may cover some of these and other extra costs
What to do
If you need medical care, visit a health centre or public hospital.
Be ready to show your passport and Medicare card.
