Health Care & Insurance
At LSU, a first aid nurse may be consulted during working hours in case of sudden health problems or minor pains. Contact the International Relations Office, Studies Department, or your tutor in case of an illness and we will take you to the nurse.
In cases of accident or emergency, the First Aid Unit (Skubios pagalbos skyrius) at Kaunas University Hospital provides first aid to the foreigners. Emergency telephone number is 112.
Students from EU and EEA countries are required to have European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). The EHIC holders can receive the same medical care as Lithuanian citizens, which is provided by general practitioners or specialists and hospital treatment in institutions that have an agreement with the Territorial Health Insurance Fund, and subsidised medicines prescribed for out-patient treatment.
*Private insurance for acute illnesses and accidents is highly recommended.
