Insurance against diseases carried by Ixodid Ticks
In addition to standard medical insurance, we recommend that students take advantage of the “Anti-tick” insurance program covering medical expenses related to tick bites. Tick-borne illnesses posing a danger to human health and safety are a risk in the Tyumen region, including encephalitis and lime disease (borreliosis) among others.
The cost of the “Anti-tick” medical insurance is 200-300 rubles. The policy is active for a period of one year.
What kind of medical assistance can foreign citizens obtain on the territory of the Russian Federation?
In cases of emergency, First Aid is rendered to foreign citizens free of charge and immediately.
Planned medical assistance is provided for health problems that are not immediately life-threatening. Planned assistance is provided to foreign citizens on a paid basis in accordance with the contract for the provision of paid medical services concluded with a medical institution.
Emergency medical care will be provided to all who need it; however, you will be reimbursed for all approved medical expenses only if you possess medical insurance. Those who do not purchase this insurance are liable to pay the entire sum of the procedures out of pocket.
At the time of a medical issue, the international student has the right to apply for emergency help by calling the insurance company. After the call the student will get referrals to the clinic. In order to take advantage of these services, ensure that you have the following documents:
