Other benefits and refunds resulting from accident at work and occupational disease

An insured person who has sustained an accident at work or contracted an occupational disease, may claim from the Social Insurance Institution a refund for the following costs:

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