According to the Law concerning Residence of Foreigners on the territory of Czech Republic, which was established on the 1st of January 2010, every foreigner who is staying in the country and has over 90 days visa as well as permission for a long-term stay, is obliged to have a comprehensive medical insurance, which was issued only by Czech insurance company.
In case you need to prolong your residence permission in Czech Republic you need to have a full set of documents which must also include Czech comprehensive medical insurance with a full coverage of 1 500 000 crones (60 000 EUR).
In case you need to obtain short-term visa which is based on tour or an invitation of Czech individual or legal entity, you will only need basic medical accident insurance with a total coverage of 1 000 000 crones (40 000 EUR).
If you are going to Czech Republic through neighbor countries you will also need only basic accident insurance in addition to your Schengen program.

I needed to get a comprehensive insurance with 60.000 EUR coverage for my student visa in the Czech Republic and I bought it online on Pojisteni-cizincu.cz with no problem.
I chose Uniqa as it's a big and reliable international company. They sent me all the required papers for the Embassy and I got a plastic card at the office in Prague at Mustek. Thanks, will come again.
I'm using Foreigners' Insurance Center in Prague for several years already. Previously I had the cheapest Maxima insurance for two years, now I got an insurance from Slavia and pVZP for my children who are studying at the moment.
My sister had an insurance for pregnant and was happy with the service. We always get all the answers we need, about the price, what is covered and the list of facilities where we can use the insurance. Highly recommend!
