Medical insurance

All incoming students at Lund University Sweden are covered by either Student IN or FAS+, which you can read more about below. Very specific definitions apply. Please get in contact with your department if something happens.

Exchange students within a formal exchange agreement

Incoming exchange students at Lund University are covered by Kammarkollegiets group insurance Student IN. This includes accident coverage, costs for home transport in case of illness or accident, liability coverage, legal expenses and property coverage. It is however very important that you read the terms and conditions carefully so that you know exactly for what you are insured. Student IN covers you in the whole Schengen area if you have a Schengen visa (property cover only in Sweden). If you don't have a Schengen visa it only covers you in Sweden. For travel outside the Schengen area you will need additional insurance coverage which you should get in your home country.

In order to make a health insurance claim, bring the original receipts and a completed Student IN claim form to your exchange studies coordinator. Your claim will be signed and sent to Kammarkollegiet via your coordinator. It will take about 3 weeks for Kammarkollegiet to process the claim. Please make a copy of the claim form and receipts to keep for your own records.

If you are an EU/EEA/Swiss citizen, you are also entitled to access public medical services for Swedish patient fees if you first register with the social insurance office in your home country. You will be issued with a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). You need to have the card with you when you seek medical attention at the health care clinic or hospital in Sweden. Hereby, you will pay Swedish patient fees directly. You can still make a health insurance claim to Kammarkollegiet even if you have paid Swedish patient fees.

Tuition fee paying students (including scholarship holders)

If you are a non-EU/EEA/Swiss citizen who is required to pay tuition fees for your studies at Lund University, you are also covered by a special insurance provided by the Swedish government, FAS+. You are covered by this insurance regardless how long your study period is (if it is less or more than 12 months).

The FAS+ insurance includes accident coverage, costs for home transport in case of illness or accident, liability coverage, legal expenses and property coverage. It is however very important that you read the terms and conditions carefully so that you know exactly for what you are insured. FAS+ covers you in the whole Schengen area if you have a Schengen visa (property cover only in Sweden). If you don't have a Schengen visa it only covers you in Sweden. For travel outside the Schengen area you will need additional insurance coverage which you should get in your home country.

In order to make a health insurance claim, bring the original receipts and a completed FAS+ claim form to your programme coordinator at the department. Your claim will be signed and sent to Kammarkollegiet via your coordinator. It will take about 3 weeks for Kammarkollegiet to process the claim. Please make a copy of the claim form and receipts to keep for your own records.
