The Lithuanian health system is organised around the family doctor (Family Clinics). When you have a medical problem, the family doctor is the first to contact, except in cases of the emergency. If you need to consult with a certain specialist, first you have to go to the family doctor to get a referral. Medication prescribed by a doctor can be bought at the nearest pharmacy (in Lithuanian, vaistinė). Some medicine you can buy only with a doctor’s prescription.
There are many Primary Health Care Institutions (larger than Family Clinics) in Kaunas belonging to the Lithuanian National Health System. They have not only family doctors but also various specialists working there, and you can have more health examinations at the same place.

Health Insurance

All international students must have medical insurance valid in Lithuania for the study period (can be renewed every year). The insurance can be obtained in the student’s home country or from a Lithuanian insurance company upon arrival.

Health insurance for EU citizens

Students from EU countries are not required to have any special health insurance. European health insurance card or form E111 confirming that a student has EU health insurance is valid in Lithuania.

Health insurance for non-EU citizens
Students from non-EU countries may obtain their health insurance either in their home country or in Lithuania.
If you come to Lithuania without a visa, make the health insurance for 3 months and then extend it when you apply for the visa or Temporary Residence Permit (TRP).
If you came holding national visa D, it means you should have health insurance for the period of visa. When you get TRP, it is more convenient to obtain health insurance in Lithuania.
Health insurance costs about 50 EUR (unconditional deductible* – about 90 EUR) or about 140 EUR (unconditional deductible* – 0 EUR) per year if you purchase it in Lithuania.
Unconditional deductible – the amount that will be deducted from the amount of loss/expenses in case of every insured event. The deductible can be indicated either in EUR or as a percentage of the insurance amount. Usually, the amount of deductible is not subtracted from the total insurance amount.
For example, if the insurance amount is 5,792.4 EUR, the deductible is 90 EUR. In case of an insured event the insurance company will cover expenses above 90 EUR and below 5,792.4 EUR. Thus if the expenses of the insured event are 250 EUR, 90 EUR will be the deduction that you have to cover by your own while the remaining expenses of 160 EUR will be covered by the insurance company. Please ask about all conditions of your insurance before paying for it.
