The presentation, based on data obtained mainly from the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Forecasts of the Social Insurance Institution in Warsaw, is a detailed analysis of the costs of the social security benefits provided to the insured presenting with pulmonary infections. Structural diversity of the costs of the separate benefits available within the national health insurance system was taken into account. Pulmonary diseases associated with the highest costs have been highlighted. Based on the available data costs associated with the incidence of such pulmonary diseases as tuberculosis, influenza, and cancer have been analyzed. Pulmonary infectious diseases have been presented against a background of the epidemiology of lung cancer. In the analyses, sex and age of the insured as well as the administrative division of Poland were considered. The results of the analyses clearly highlight a lack of epidemiological data on such pulmonary diseases as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and mycobacterial infections that are not obligatory notifiable, but constitute not only a significant clinical problem but also generate expenses associated with the social security benefits.

Key words: work absence, benefits, social security, pulmonary infectious diseases
