Insurance - UJEP | Univerzita J. E. Purkyně

Insurance

All foreigners are obliged to have a valid medical travel insurance for the whole stay at our university.

Students have to present the confirmation of the medical travel insurance before the registration at the study department of the appropriate faculty.

EU citizens

EU citizens staying in the Czech Republic longer than 90 days will present the European Health Insurance Card.

After their arrival they have to register at the health insurance company called Všeobecná zdravotní pojišťovna (Mírové náměstí 35/C, Ústí nad Labem, office hours Monday and Wednesday 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday 8 a.m. – 3 p.m., and Friday 8 a.m. – 2 p.m.).

Non-EU citizens – exceptions

As result of being part of the International Treaty on Cooperation in the Area of Health and Social Security, medical travel insurance is not required from citizens of:

  • Albania,
  • Croatia,
  • Macedonia,
  • Montenegro,
  • Tunisia,
  • Turkey,
  • Serbia.

However, non-EU citizens included in this exception, staying in the Czech Republic longer than 90 days have to present the E111 form.

After their arrival they have to register at the health insurance company called Všeobecná zdravotní pojišťovna (Mírové náměstí 35/C, Ústí nad Labem, office hours Monday and Wednesday 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday 8 a.m. – 3 p.m., and Friday 8 a.m. – 2 p.m.).

Non-EU citizens – no exception

Non-EU citizens are obliged to have a medical travel insurance. We recommend one of the following Czech insurance companies –  Maxima, VZP, UNIQA, Ergo, or Slavia, because a medical travel insurance contract issued by any other health insurance company in English or other language has to be officially translated to the Czech language. The amount of the insurance benefit (the agreed insurance benefit limit for one insurance event) must be at least EUR 60 000, that being without an insurance retention on the amount of the given costs.
