It is very important for you to be properly insured during your period of study or placement in Romania. Medical costs can be high, especially if they include a stay in a hospital. Students registered at institutions of higher education are not automatically insured against medical expenses. Therefore you must arrange this yourself. 

In case you ever need to access health care services during your period of study or placement in Romania, either of the following alternatives would work:

  • the European Health Insurance Card (to be used only in case of emergency) or
  • the certificate E106 (normally for residents, it covers more than emergencies).

In case you are already here and totally forgot about your health insurance before leaving, you may go to the Local Heal Insurance Department (address: Str. Gheorghe Asachi nr. 18-20, 700483 Iaşi) and apply for either of the two mentioned-above.
