Medical Insurance for International Students

 

What is Voluntary Health Insurance?


Voluntary health insurance (VHI/DMS) is a type of personal insurance, which allows an insured person to get health services at medical institutions. VHI/DMS policies for international students can ensure protection from life- and health-related risks throughout the period of their stay in Russia.

 

Why is it Important for an International Student to have a Health Insurance Policy?


Firstly, a health insurance policy is one of the required documents that confirms a foreign citizen’s right to stay in Russia. All international students are required to purchase a health insurance policy within 15 days from their date of arrival to Russia. A health insurance policy must be valid throughout the entire period of their stay in Russia.

Furthermore, a health insurance policy allows students to get health services at medical institutions in Russia.

 

How Can International Students Purchase a Health Insurance Policy?


International students can purchase a health insurance policy from the representatives of insurance firms recommended by HSE University. To find out more about recommended DMS offerings and the purchasing of a policy, please visit the Office of Staff and Student Benefits’ website at: https://www.hse.ru/en/medical/ins/ .

 

Important! If a health insurance policy is not purchased or done so at a later date, international students may be subject to disciplinary measures as per HSE University’s internal bylaws.
