One of the documents required for issuing permits to foreigners (work permit / patent) for the purpose of employment in the Russian Federation is a voluntary health insurance policy. This document along with the rest of the documents must be submitted to the authorities. You can buy a voluntary health insurance policy for foreign citizens by contacting representatives of authorized insurance companies in Russia. The country of residence of a foreign citizen does not affect the DMS price.
Insurance types, validity period and how to get one:
There are several insurance options. They differ based on insurance programs, validity period and area of validity. These factors also act on the cost of applying for a voluntary medical insurance policy. To obtain a work permit / patent, a policy with the minimum (but mandatory for the agency) insurance conditions is sufficient, such a program is known as ‘migrant’. It should contain a list of medical services, including provision procedures, ensuring the obtaining of primary and specialized medical care urgently in cases of health problems and conditions in accordance with Part Six of Article 35 of the Federal Law No. 326-FЗ dated November 29, 2010.
