If you are an EU/EFTA resident, and hold a valid medical insurance in your country, it entitles you to get free medical care in Poland. You will be asked to present your ID/passport/student ID card and a valid European Health Insurance Card (Europejska Karta Ubezpieczenia Zdrowotnego). More information is available on the National Health Fund website [ link ].
If you come from outside of the EU/EFTA, you can choose between two options: either you buy international health insurance in your home country before you come to Poland, or you sign a voluntary health insurance agreement with the National Health Fund (Narodowy Fundusz Zdrowia). Monthly it costs around 15 EUR and entitles you to obtain healthcare in medical centers, hospitals and clinics.
