My certificates of temporary incapacity for work

A certificate of incapacity for work becomes available after a doctor has opened it; the status "Opened by doctor" will be displayed. When the doctor has terminated the certificate, the status "Employer’s confirmation pending" will be displayed.

The status of certificates supplemented by the employer and reimbursed by the Health Insurance Fund is "Benefits are being calculated". The status of certificates supplemented by the employer and reimbursed by the Health Insurance Fund is "Transfer completed".

The Health Insurance Fund usually pays the benefit within a few working days of the employer confirming the form. If the data require further verification, the processing may take maximum of 30 days.

If an employee falls ill, the employer pays the benefit from day 4 to day 8, and the Health Insurance Fund pays from day 9. If the certificate of incapacity for work is for less than 9 days, the status “Not reimbursable by the Health Insurance Fund" is displayed.

Attention! The procedure for compensating the sick leaves is changed until the end of 2021. The employee co-pay covers the first day of illness, the employer covers the compensation from the second to the fifth day, and the Health Insurance Fund pays the compensation from the sixth day onwards.
