Citizens of the EU/ EFTA with the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) are entitled to receive free health care services. Using the card they can go directly to a primary health centre.
Students from countries outside the EU/EFTA should purchase insurance before they arrive in Poland or purchase insurance in the Polish National Health Fund (Narodowy Fundusz Zdrowia - NFZ).
