Students coming to Prague for studies are required to have a health and accident insurance valid for the Czech Republic. Students from EU and EEC (European Economic Community) countries shall require European health insurance card (the blue one) or a certified form E 128 from their respective health insurance agencies. Bilateral contracts concerning social and medical care have been signed with some countries not being in EU and EEC (e.g. Croatia, Serbia, Monte Negro, Turkey,…). Students coming from these countries should require further information about these contracts from their respective health insurance agencies at home.
It is strongly recommended to arrange your health and accident insurance policy prior to your arrival to the Czech Republic. In a particular case you can sign a private insurance contract upon your arrival to the Czech Republic (for example at Všeobecná zdravotní pojišťovna (VZP) – the biggest Czech insurance agency).
For further information concerning administrative procedures and reimbursement in the Czech Republic follow the link: Centre for International Reimbursements or contact your health insurance agency in your country.
