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.
