Pupils who do not make it to secondary school must pay health insurance | News

Pupils who will not continue their studies after finishing primary school should start paying for health insurance after the summer holidays. The state would continue to pay for them only if they reported to the labor office.

Viktorie Plívová, spokeswoman for the General Health Insurance Company, draws attention to this.

If the young people did not register at the employment office and did not even start a job, they would have to pay insurance premiums as a “person without taxable income”. For this year, it is 2336 crowns per month.

Health insurance companies would have to report this within eight days of the end of the holiday. If he starts work, he reports the change and the employer pays for the health insurance.

A numerically strong class of children is graduating from elementary school this year. There are fears that there won’t be places for all secondary schools.

Health insurance is compulsory in the Czech Republic. It is paid for by the state for children and students under 26, but also for the unemployed or pensioners. If the pupil does not go to another school after the end of the ninth grade, the obligation to pay health contributions is transferred to him.

“If a student wants to continue in this regime (where the levies are paid by the state), he needs to register at the labor office and report this fact to his health insurance company,” Plívová told ČTK.

“In the event that children do not get into one of the secondary schools after primary school, it is certainly appropriate for parents to consider all options to keep their child in the educational process. For example, use the possibility of studying foreign languages, specialized courses and the like. After all, practice shows that parents and their teenage children choose this path most often,” pointed out the spokeswoman of the General Directorate of the Labor Office, Kateřiny Beránková

High school students who fail the entrance exams have the opportunity to study a foreign language in a special course for one year after graduation. The state then continues to pay health contributions for them. However, according to the available information, there is no such offer of language courses for primary school pupils.
