MEDICAL FACILITIES

With their European Health Insurance Card students from EU/EEA States can go directly to Wiener Gebietskrankenkasse (WGKK) (Viennese Health Insurance Fund) contracted doctors. All doctors are listed in the telephone directory. Prescription medicines are available in pharmacies (€ 5.30 for each medicine prescribed).
Students insured in a country with a Social Security Agreement with Austria (these are currently Bosnia, Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Serbia and Montenegro, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Turkey, Hungary), must have the Form A3 of their national health insurer which they can obtain from their insurance office at home. This form must be exchanged for a Krankenschein (“health insurance voucher”) at the responsible Austrian Health Insurance Fund (WGKK, Wienerbergstrasse 15-19, 1100 Vienna, tel.: 01/60122). With this Krankenschein you can then go to WGKK contracted doctors.

The UAS also offers students an annual health check to help prevent any need for the above. For medical emergencies, FH employees are trained to provide first aid. Each floor is equipped with a first aid cabinet and a defibrillator is installed in the secretariat.
