Medical Assistance

Please note: The Department of State assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the entities or individuals whose names appear on the following lists. Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department or the U.S. government. Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance. The information on the list is provided directly by the local service providers; the Department is not in a position to vouch for such information.

In case of an emergency and/or for ambulance services in Slovenia, please dial 112.

When an American citizen is injured or ill, the Embassy can help contact friends and/or family members, explain the local health care system, and provide information on medical evacuation options.  General information about emergency medical assistance and medical travel information can also be found on the Department of State’s website.  Please note that the U.S. Embassy cannot provide medical advice, recommend a particular doctor, or pay medical bills.

The Embassy maintains a list of hospitals, doctors and pharmacies in Slovenia.  The listing is not intended as all-inclusive or as an exclusive list of medical practitioners, but rather a means to provide interested American citizens with a convenient reference.

Dial 112 to call an ambulance in Slovenia

Consular Officers are not doctors and cannot provide medical advice.  The U.S. Embassy in Ljubljana, Slovenia, assumes no responsibility for the professional ability or integrity of the persons or organizations whose names appear on this list.  The names are arranged alphabetically by city and by last name.  These physicians responded to an Embassy survey and indicated willingness to provide treatment to American citizens.

Americans should be aware that doctors and hospitals in Slovenia usually expect immediate payment for services rendered.  The patient may then be able to obtain subsequent reimbursement from his/her insurance company.  Americans should be aware that U.S. Medicare does not provide coverage outside the U.S.  We are prohibited from recommending one doctor over another.
