This work is focused on regulation fees in public health care in Czech republic, which were introduced on 1. 1. 2008. It is nowadays often speculated subject and people are still concerned with fees. We studied opinions about regulation fees on three sociodemografic groups – students, working people and pensioners. A requirement for members of these groups was to have their family practitioners in Pilsen-town. We especially focused on their knowledge of regulation fees, because of findings in our initial research that people often did not know, when the regulation fee is or is not to be paid. We eliminated health workers (i.e. doctors, nurses and pharmacists) from our research because we discovered a possibility of their affection due to their profit from regulation fees. We had 42 respondents – half of them were women and the rest of our research samples were men. We asked people about their source of information, and we asked for their opinion concerning groups of people, which should be relieved of their duty to pay regulation fees. Finally we asked them, if they agree or do not agree with paying regulation fees. We found out, that most of our respondents agree with any kind of fee, but they often talked about necessity of leaving some groups out of the fee system.
