Austrian Market for Dental Prosthetics and CAD/CAM Devices 2011 – MedSuite


Austria provides its citizens with free or nearly free medical service. Participation in public health insurance programs is mandatory. Approximately 5.3 million Austrian workers contribute to the public health insurance companies (Krankenkassen), providing health care coverage for themselves and their families, a total of about 8 million persons. Insurance costs are shared between employers and employees. Insurance for hospital treatment, however, falls short of actual costs, and the difference is met through public funds. The country has a national social security system which pays for basic dental services. There are, however, additional fees for services such as dental prostheses, implants and artificial teeth.
