Students with nationality from EU/EEA countries can request in their home country the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). Thanks this card, EU/EEA nationals can benefit of the same cover as locals by the NFZ (The Narodowy Fundusz Zdrowia is the National Health Fund of Poland).

Attention : The EHIC is not an alternative to travel insurance. It does not cover any travel protection, search and rescue, repatriation to the home country, emergency dental treatments, assistance… A private insurance is highly recommended in Poland also for EU/EEA nationals during the entire stay in Poland. The NFZ provide basic medical services to foreigners.
