FeelSafe Insurance Plan (valid in Europe except for Switzerland)

CEU PU's international students are provided with private insurance which offers extensive coverage and medical services in Austria (covering all risks) and in the EEA Zone (except Switzerland) via insurer UNIQA. The insurance plan provides a direct billing network through LARA partnership, personal insurance consultancy, and 24 hours English-speaking call-center. Within the LARA network all doctors, pharmacies, and laboratories speak English and charge the insurance company directly when their services are used. Hence, there is no need for an upfront payment from the insured’s side. The insurance plan from FeelSafe is available for family members. For further information please contact the Student Center. To see the terms and conditions of the insurance, please click here.

Hungary

The primary medical examination, treatment, further referral and reimbursement procedures are undertaken by the CEU Medical Center. The patient’s path in the health care system is determined by doctors at the CEU Medical Center. Further referrals and received treatments may be paid by the student, and the patient insured by the CEU Generali Health Insurance Plan could claim for reimbursement from the Medical Center afterwards. For more information on the reimbursement process please click here.

If a student has a medical problem, he/she should turn to the CEU Medical Center first, where his/her examination and treatment would begin. If the doctor concludes that there is a need for further examination or treatment based on the patient’s current health condition, he/she may refer the patient to the necessary examinations (laboratory, X-ray, etc.) or to the selected specialist units (dermatology, gynecology, urology, otolaryngology, ophthalmology, oncology, general surgery, etc.).

The Medical Center guarantees that patients will be referred to professional external providers for further treatments and examinations. This is the point where the CEU Medical Center connects to the Hungarian public health care system.
