Health Insurance
Health insurance is mandatory for all doctoral students for the whole duration of their stay in Poland. It is also required to obtain a temporary residence permit.

Health insurance for EU citizens:
EU citizens are eligible for free health services in Poland providing that they present a valid European Health Insurance Card.
EU citizens without health insurance in their countries of residence can sign a health insurance agreement with the National Health Fund (NFZ – Narodowy Fundusz Zdrowia) or with one of the private clinics.

Health insurance for non-EU citizens:
Students who are not from the European Union do not have access to free healthcare . Non-EU citizens can sign a health insurance agreement with the National Health Fund (NFZ – Narodowy Fundusz Zdrowia) or with one of the private clinics.
We strongly recommend signing the insurance agreement with the National Health Fund (Narodowy Fundusz Zdrowia – NFZ). With this you will get access to free public healthcare. It is also relatively cheap – it costs 55,80 PLN/month.
You can find all the necessary information how to get the NFZ insurance here:
