Health and medical insurance
According to Russian law, foreign citizens must file for medical insurance before or after entering Russia.
If you haven’t purchased insurance before coming to Russia, you must purchase your voluntary medical insurance policy once you arrive at Samara University.
The Staff at the International Office will advise you of an insurance company you can contact and explain the procedure.
The fee for voluntary medical insurance (VMI) for foreigners in Russia is around RUB 2,500-3,000.
VMI includes emergency first aid and specialised emergency care. The insurance policy includes the addresses and phone numbers of institutions where you can go to get help.
If an international student does not have a VMI policy or if costs exceed reasonable coverage, he or she will have to pay for all medical services provided except emergency care. The policy cannot be applied for in case of the occurrence of an insured event.
