Medical Aid & Insurance

All foreign citizens must have medical insurance valid for the entire period of their stay in Russia. We recommend purchasing health insurance before arriving to Russia. If your medical insurance expired during your studies at Higher School of Economics or you did not purchase it in advance, you may order it from the insurance companies listed below or contact any other insurance company. To seek medical help, you must call the hotline number indicated in the policy and follow the instructions received.

Please note that insurance policies DO NOT cover chronic illnesses or serious diseases, including covid-19.

In 2020, for students coming from abroad, an important condition for checking into a hostel and / or admission to the full-time educational process is the provision of the results of two tests for COVID-19 using the PCR method. You may purchase insurance with an included testing package, or you can make tests separately in any private clinic, several possible options are presented here.
