Hello,
According to the slovak republic web-site you need proof of medical insurance at the border. http://www.slovakembassy-us.org/wwwAnglicky/travel%20to%20the%20SR.doc
Also...Perry Visa says this is required...........https://perryvisa.com/entryRequirements/Slovak.php
Are you aware of this?

Hi Wendy,
This requirement is checked rarely to never and is relatively recent.
Should the rare situation arise that the border police would request proof of medical insurance, you would need documents showing that your US policy includes coverage for you as indicated (all hospitalisations and medical treatment). I.e., a policy valid in the US that covers travel abroad with minimum coverage of EUR 30,000 would meet the requirement. A policyholder card along with a description of coverage would be ideal but in all honesty, as long as the traveler is in fact insured in case an actual medical emergency occurs I would not worry about anyone requiring the proof.
