All international students must arrange health insurance prior to their arrival to the Slovak Republic. Students from EU/EEA countries who are insured need to bring their European Health In¬surance Card with them, which can be obtained from their insurance companies in their home countries. If students have arranged insurance only in home country they have to pay for the treatment  immediately on the spot. The costs will be reimbursed  by insurance company after their arrival back home. Students  can receive health services in the following areas: primary health care, specialist out-patient care, hospital treatment, dental treatment, rescue services and ambulance transport. The European Health Insurance Card cannot be used for private sector health care providers.
Students from NON-EU countries have to register for the Slovak health insurance. “The Confirmation of Health Insurance” (translated in Slovak language) is also required by Foreign Police Department. It costs about 150.00 €.
