Health insurance requirements for Foreigners in Lithuania
 
It is compulsory to have a valid health insurance for entire period of stay in Lithuania. Only emergency medical aid is given free of charge.

Please make sure you have one before arrival or ask at the International Office to indicate insurance company to obtain valid health insurance here in Lithuania. A minimum insured amount of the medical insurance contract (policy) needs to be at least 30.000 Eur and the insurance contract shall guarantee that all basic medical assistance costs and travel expenses which may arise in connection with the return, for health reasons, of a foreigner to homeland (medical transportation/repatriation, including escort by medical brigade or a doctor) will be covered.

If you do not have European Health Insurance Card (applicable only for EU citizens) or Health insurance policy from your home country it is strongly recommended to obtain health insurance in Lithuania at local insurance companies. Health insurance for foreigners in Lithuania for 5 months period costs approximately 87-115 Eur. More information on local insurance companies and terms of insurance is available on http://www.draudikai.lt/en/insurers. Every time when medical treatment at a general practitioner or hospitalisation is required you will be asked to show your health insurance policy. In most cases a foreigner is required to pay for health care services to the health care institution and then needs to claim for reimbursement of expenses from their health insurance providers (accordingly, read all terms and conditions of your health insurance policy carefully and keep the contact telephone of insurance company nearby!!!).
