Summary/Abstract: Unlike commercial insurance premiums, monthly contribution to the health insurance system depends mainly on the income of the insured person. Amount of revenue of the health insurance companies, however, should be sufficient to cover all costs, especially the cost of health care. Health care costs vary. The paper presents the process of the health care costs estimation in the regions of the Czech Republic by applying the empirical Bayesian credibility models.
