Health Insurance

It is strongly recommended that all students have medical insurance for the period of studying (mostly for one year, later they prolong its validity). Medical insurance allows to save money and get medical assistance in public medical institutions of Saint-Petersburg for free. This policy contains a memo with emergency phone numbers in case of insurance event (illness, injury, etc.) and a list of medical institutions where you can get medical assistance free of charge.

Foreign citizens or stateless persons must have a health insurance policy (500 thousand rubles with repatriation included) valid in the Russian Federation. The period of the insurance validity must correspond to the period of registration in the Russian Federation.

The average cost for insurance is: 140 $ (~ 14000)

REMEMBER! You will not get free medical help without the insurance policy.
