Everyone knows that today the National Health Insurance Fund under the Ministry of Health is one  of the most important institutions in the health sector that carries out compulsory health insurance. However, it is likely that little is known about such rather interesting historical facts, such as: in our country, as early as in 1912, it was planned to introduce compulsory insurance of industrial workers in case of illness, but the plans were thwarted by the First World War, and the first health insurance fund in Lithuania was established on 28 October 1928 In Kaunas.

In this section, we invite you to get acquainted with the interesting and „winding“ history of health insurance funds, which dates back as early as to the end of 19th century and the beginning of 20th century.
