  • In Austria, a child’s health is usually overseen by a pediatrician (Kinderartz).
    A mother-child-booklet (Mutter-Kind-Pass) is issued to every expectant mother in Austria. Mandatory examinations during the pregnancy, after the birth, and ongoing until the child’s fifth birthday are documented in this.

  • One of the most important characteristics of Austrian healthcare is the variety of health insurance funds, and respectively, the difference in the coverage they provide for the people insured with them. One does not choose a health insurance fund themselves but rather gets assigned one depending on area of work and/or employer.

  • If you are not sure how ill your child is or where best to take them, you can contact the new health advice telephone number 1450 (no area code from all networks) around the clock. Here you will receive competent advice and be directed to the best treatment location for you.
