Description of health care system funding and provision e.g. publicly funded and provided:

The Greek health care system features a mixture of public and private services and funding. In Greece, coverage for health services by social insurance organizations (EOPYY: the single insurance fund and buyer of healthcare services) and the ESY (the integrated National Health System: administered directly by the State and delivering most hospital services as well as primary healthcare) is ostensibly full and universal.

Supplementing this public system is an abundant supply of private services provided by independent medical offices, diagnostic centers and hospitals.
