Health/medical insurance is obligatory for all foreign students!!
The European Health Insurance Card makes it easier for citizens of the 27 EU Member States (plus EFTA states - Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland) to access health care services during their temporary stays abroad.
The Card grants them the same access to public sector health care (e.g. a doctor, a pharmacy,
a hospital or a health care centre) as the one enjoyed by the nationals of the country they are visiting. Those receiving medical attention in a country that charges fees for health care, will be reimbursed either immediately, or after they return to their home countries.
Student should make sure the insurance period covers the whole period of studies (some insurance companies limit the number of days you can spend abroad). When using health services the student must present their insurance policy.
Depending on the terms and conditions of the insurance, the student can receive health care free of charge, or he/she will be charged, and will have to get reimbursement of the costs from their insurance company.
If the student does not have an insurance policy, he/she will be required to cover the health care costs by themselves.
It is also possible to purchase such insurance on the spot from National Health Fund (NFZ), which amounts to approx. 49 PLN per month.
If the student wants to join the NFZ, he/she should sign a contract with NFZ (the nearest NFZ office is ul. Jana Pawła II 7, Legnica). The student needs the following documents:
in the night time between 6:00 p.m - 8:00 a.m. and holidays student may get a help in Specialized Hospital in Legnica (Wojewódzki Szpital Specjalistyczny w Legnicy) at Iwaszkiewicza 5.
