Health Insurance Options

CEU requires that all enrolled students have adequate health insurance for the duration of their enrollment and official residence in Austria or Hungary. Failure to fulfill the requirements may result in the termination of enrollment.

Full-time, degree students enrolled at CEU are insured:

  • In Austria: by the CEU Health Insurance Plan provided by a private health insurance company. EEA citizens have the possibility to use their EHIC besides their private health insurance from CEU. Austrian citizens need to use their public health insurance.
  • In Hungary: by the CEU Health Insurance Plan provided by Generali Insurance Company (private insurance). EEA citizens have the possibility to use their EHICs besides their Generali insurances. Hungarian citizens are insured in the Hungarian social security (TAJ). 

Non-degree students enrolled at CEU are not eligible for health insurance covered by CEU. However, we recommend the following options:

  • In Austria:
    • EU citizens can use their valid European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)
    • All international students can buy the FeelSafe student insurance or another insurance accepted by MA35
  • In Hungary:
    • EU citizens can use their valid European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)
    • All international students can buy Generali insurance with the help of the Student Center or have their own insurance with the same coverage conditions as the CEU Health Plan
