Other benefits and refunds in respect of an accident at work or occupational disease

The insured person who has sustained an accident at work or contracted an occupational disease, may claim an additional support from ZUS.

The Social Insurance Institution may cover the costs of:

  • effects of accident at work or occupational disease connected with dentist services and prophylactic vaccinations, to which the insured person was referred by ZUS evaluating doctor at the request of the attending physician (if such costs are not subject to refund under separate legislation),
  • medical devices – to an amount equal to that financed by the insured person, fixed by the legislation on health care benefits financed by public funds.
