The residents of an EU country 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 visit a doctor or hospital here in Poland.
If you are the citizen of non-EU country or you do not have such insurance you can sign-up for health insurance from the NFZ (Narodowy Fundusz Zdrowia = National Health Fund), the Polish government health insurance agency.
To sign up you would have to visit NFZ office located at:
Pałacowa 3 Street
Phone no. 85 745 95 00
Open: Monday- Friday;
Hours: 8am- 4pm
