Leading insurer says majority of centres providing two PCR tests a month for free

The country’s leading health insurance company VZP says that 80 percent of Covid-19 testing centres are adhering to the government ruling to provide two PCR and four antigen tests a month for free to people with health insurance as of June 1.

Several labs such as GHC Genetics, Synlab or AeskuLab have so far failed to comply arguing that they had failed to receive adequate methodological instructions.

VZP has urged clients whose request for free testing is rejected to go elsewhere. It says testing centres are bound to comply with the new regulation but that it is not in a position to make control inspections.
