Abstract: The Czech health system has performed relatively well with low out-of-pocket payments, a broad benefit basket, plentiful human resources, and good results for some important health indicators. However, the recent global financial crisis once again highlighted the financial vulnerability of the current system, reflected among other things, by the return of solvency problems among health insurance funds. Yet no consensus exists among political parties on financial reform. Rather, reforms are limited to several small changes every time a new political party comes into power, while the larger issues regarding sufficient resource mobilisation are not addressed.
