Every foreign student is obliged to purchase health insurance. EU/EEA citizens should possess the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).
For Non-EU/EEA students it is highly recommended to sign a health insurance agreement with the Polish National Health Fund (monthly rate - PLN 46.80) or with a private medical centre. There are no exceptions to this rule in accordance with the ordinance of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of October 12, 2006, Art.1, Point 2, Section 3, on foreigners undertaking or continuing studies and participating in scientific research and training.
The Polish National Health Fund insurance covers basic treatment up to EUR 30,000.
