Residents of EU Member States will most likely have their government sponsored health insurance. If you have a valid blue European Health Insurance Card as pictured below, you do not need any additional insurance. Just make sure you have your card with you when you see a doctor or hospital here in Poland.
If you are the citizen of a non-Member State or you do not have the insurance mentioned above, you may sign up for health insurance from NFZ (Narodowy Fundusz Zdrowia = National Health Fund), the Polish government health insurance agency.
To sign up, you have to come to the NFZ office at:
ul. Pałacowa 3
Phone no. 85 745 95 00
Open: Monday- Friday;
Hours: 8:00 AM to - 4:00 PM
