All full-time Lithuanian students are insured by the Lithuanian government. All you have to do is to choose a family doctor and register. You may choose one of the clinics that LCC has a partnership with or you may choose any other state or private clinic in the town.
All EU students prior to coming to LCC need to obtain the European Health Insurance Card (or EHIC) which issued free of charge in your home country and allow you to receive medical treatment in another member state for free or at a reduced cost. It only covers healthcare which is normally covered by a statutory health care system in the visited country. More information about the EHIC is available here »
All non EU students that come to LCC need to obtain health insurance prior to the arrival. Insurance is coordinated through LCC which make sure that students are properly insured under a reliable and cost-effective insurance scheme. The duration of insurance is the same as the duration of the Temporary Residence Permit. It only covers medical expenses in Lithuania. If a student wishes to travel to another member state, one is advised to obtain additional (travel) insurance.
Your insurance covers medical expenses related to URGENT medical help, defined below:
Most medications and medical supplies can be purchased at local pharmacies, though preferred brands may not be available. If you are on prescription medication, it is advisable to bring a supply with you. Although first aid kits are available in all buildings, LCC does not have a supply of medications or a nurse on staff.
IMPORTANT: if you are on any form of long-term medication or have a health condition, it is imperative you inform LCC before your arrival.
Applying to medical care institution regarding:
- accidental injury
- unexpected SUDDEN health disorder, the symptoms of which cause the threat to life or require the urgent medical aid
- if the Insured experiences high temperature and the symptoms of cold occur, the expenses of visit to the doctor and necessary medication are compensated for the Insured.
- if Insured breaks a leg, the visit to the doctor, setting the plaster and the control visit-consultation are covered.
- if the sudden pain in the stomach occurs, the visit to the doctor and the most necessary analysis needed for the first medical aid are compensated. If the aid is needed at the stationary medical institution the further treatment would also be compensated (for example, the operation).
Your insurance policy is saved on the Public Student S Drive → Migration Office. You can access this drive through LCC student web portal. Each year/semester university will take care of the additional/new insurance policy. You are kindly advised you to print insurance policy and have it with you in case something happens.
