Insurance requirement policy

The exchange students coming to our university are obliged to have a health and accident insurance valid throughout the whole period of their stay in Poland. It is recommended to have a liability insurance, too.

Students from the European Union or the European Economic Area are expected to apply for the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) in their home country.


Health insurance


The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) should be issued by a competent domestic authority before your arrival to Poland and should cover the whole period of your stay in Poland. The EHIC entitles you to free-of-charge health care in Poland on the same principles as the Polish citizens. The free-of-charge services are provided by clinics/hospitals/doctors that have a contract with the Polish National Health Fund (in short: NFZ), which is the institution responsible for health care in Poland.

To get treatment by a general practitioner (examination and consultation) you should show your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) or a replacement certificate together with a valid identity document and student ID.

Students from outside the European Union and EEA countries are obliged to obtain the health insurance either at the Polish National Health Fund (NFZ) after coming to Poland or at any other private insurance company in their home country or in Poland. The health insurance must be valid throughout the whole period of your stay in Poland.

Depending on the terms and conditions of your insurance, you can receive health care free of charge, or you will be charged and get the costs of the treatment reimbursed after coming back home.

If you choose to join the Polish National Health Fund (NFZ) the cost will be around PLN 50 (12 EUR) per month. When using health services, you will have to present your NFZ contract and the monthly premium payment receipt.
