A Health Loan may be useful for major healthcare expenses. Various screening tests, the purchase of a medical aid, or a surgery may be costly. The required amount might not be at your disposal in such a difficult situation. A Health Loan may provide a flexible solution: following approval and contracting, the bank will transfer the loan to the Medicina Health Fund as your payment, which you can conveniently spend for medical purposes. APR1: 24.38%)
We also offer an interest rate discount to go with your Health Loan: if you choose our bank to manage your finances, you are eligible for an Active interest rate discount as detailed below. APR with Active interest rate discount1: 20.66%
A representative example
In the event of applying for a HUF 1,5 million Health Loan for a 5 year term, the standard interest rate is 18.97% annually; the standard loan interest rate period is 5 years, i.e. identical to the term, therefore the interest rate on the loan is fixed throughout its term. The annual percentage rate (APR) of the loan is 24.38%; the monthly repayment is HUF 38,886. If the loan is contracted according to the conditions set out herein, the total amount repayable by the client is HUF 2,425,664; the total cost of the loan is HUF 925,664.
The amount of the loan is first disbursed to a collateral account with UniCredit, from which it is transferred to your Medicina Health Fund account. The loan is repayable from a UniCredit bank account, which must therefore be maintained throughout the term of the loan.

What discounts are offered in relation to the Health personal loan?
Our bank transfers the amount of the Health Loan to the Medicina Health Fund, and the payment qualifies as your personal payment, as a result of which you are eligible to a 20% tax allowance2 on the amount of the loan.
We offer a 3% Active interest rate discount from the normal interest rate if you comply with the requirements:
- at least HUF 90,000 are transferred to your bank account every month3 and
- you use your debit card for purchases4 of a minimum amount of HUF 15,000 per month.
The APR in the event of an interest rate discount1 is 20.66%. With the exception of the first 2 months of the term, the bank shall inspect compliance with the requirements of the Active interest rate discount monthly, for the period between the first and last day of each calendar month. If you fail to meet the requirements in a reviewed month you will not be entitled to the interest discount in the subsequent month.
