Students with nationality of countries belonging to the European Union, the European Economic Area (Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) and Switzerland are advised to have the European sanitary card.
Consult all the information and services included with your national health system.
This card allows you to access public health during your stay, but you must bear in mind that it may not cover all medical expenses, since there are differences between the health systems of the different countries. Special care should be taken if you are receiving medical treatment.
Upon your arrival in Madrid, we recommend that you visit the health center closest, with the European Health Card and your passport or national identity document to inform you of the coverage and assistance.
This is why we recommend that you hire a private insurance that includes medical assistance and repatriation, among other guarantees.
If you do, make sure you understand the terms, like what services are covered and how to get them.
A recommended option is the OnCampus Study insurance, with very extensive coverage and a very advantageous rate. Through this link you can review the conditions and contract it https://oncampus.es/seguros/oncampus-estudia/
