Services

Pre-hospital and specialized EMC is coordinated in interactive manner and is financed by state budget. For local patient in need it is free of charge. Also, to provide equal EMC services for inhabitants’ residing in border areas - SEMS has developed cooperation with the neighbor countries - Estonia, Lithuania and Belarus.

The state covered specialised medical service capacity covers only those cases when a CEDM specialist is called in by one of the hospitals of Latvia, once it has been established that own efforts and resources are insufficient to save the life and health of the patient. In cases when the patients, their relatives, or employers wishing to receive more qualified medical care call in the specialists of the CEDM themselves the state does not cover the expenses. To ensure the rights of the patients to freely choose and receive highly qualified medical care CEDM offers services for charge* and provides specialised medical care to patients both within and outside the borders of Latvia.
