The National Health Insurance Fund contracts the provision of healthcare services to its insured persons with healthcare facilities included in the so-called Health Facilities Network Plan. The Plan is adopted by the Government of the Republic of Serbia, upon proposal of the Ministry of Health.
The Fund may enter into contracts with the facilities not included in the Network Plan but only for a certain number and types of healthcare services which cannot be provided within the existing capacities of healthcare facilities within the Network Plan.
Entering in contracts with the facilities not included in the Network Plan is subject to review by the Institute of Public Health of Serbia "Dr Milan Jovanović-Batut" while the approval for entering into contacts is granted by the Ministry of Health.
The list of healthcare services providers with which the NHIF has entered into contracts of service provision:
