EU Students

Lithuanian students are insured by the state insurance until they graduate (until August 31 of the year you graduate). All EU students prior to coming to LCC need to obtain the European Health Insurance Card (or EHIC) is 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.

Non-EU students

All non-EU students need to obtain health insurance prior to arrival and are insured through LCC under a reliable and cost-effective insurance scheme. The insurance is valid as long as your visa D or Temporary Residence Permit.

  • If you have TRP, you insurance only covers medical expenses in Lithuania.
  • If you have a visa D, your insurance covers medical expenses in Schengen countries.

Your insurance covers medical expenses related to URGENT medical help, defined below:

  • Medical services, when students apply to the medical institution
  • Expenses for necessary medication, fixation and bandage substances, for the immediate transportation within the territory of Lithuania
  • Medical services, when mortifying toothache and for urgent dental help (up to €150)
  • In the case of death or heavy condition, the patient's insurance covers the expenses related to the transportation to one’s country (repatriation expenses).

Most medications and medical supplies can be purchased at local pharmacies. 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. Your insurance policy is saved on the Public Student S Drive → Migration Office. You can access this drive through LCC student web portal (portal.lcc.lt). You are kindly advised you to print insurance policy and have it with you in case something happens.

IMPORTANT: if you are on any form of long-term medication or have a health condition, it is important that you inform LCC before your arrival.

What does the insurance cover?

Insurance covers cases when an unexpected sudden health disorder that requires medical treatment (e.g. fever, pain, fractures, injuries, necessary surgery, etc.)

Insurance does not cover:
Oncological diseases Pregnancy
Chronic diseases Pathological fractures
Sexually transmitted diseases Plastic cosmetology surgeries
Physiotherapy Intoxication with alcohol, drugs or chemical toxic substances

At the clinic or hospital

For all emergency cases (injury, traumas, heavy bleeding, severe pain, loss of consciousness, etc.) please go straight to the hospitals’ Accident and Emergency Admissions department. If you can wait for an appointment, call to set up a meeting with the family doctor who will review your case and if needed, will refer to specialists for further tests. Do not set up appointments with specialists directly, insurance will not cover that expense. Once in the clinic/hospital, present your ID together with the printed insurance to the medical personnel. There are two ways hospitals process your insurance:

  • They will ask you to pay for the service in cash or by card.
  • They will process the insurance directly with the insurance company.

If you pay for the services upfront, get 3 documents:

  • receipt of payment
  • invoice  (Lith. sąskaita faktūra) 
  • medical record (Lith. medicininis išrašas)

Note: Receipt of payment and the invoice come together; they will be stapled together.
