Foreign student from a country OUTSIDE the EU (permit B or L)

Exemption from compulsory health and accident insurance for B Permit or L Permit foreign students from outside the European Union

According to the enacted federal law on health insurance (LAMal) students holding a B or L permit may be exempted from contracting a compulsory health insurance in the Canton de Vaud provided that they can produce an attestation from a foreign health insurance company stating that they have basic coverage identical to that which is compulsory in Switzerland.

To obtain exemption, a student must make a formal request and complete a form called Attestation de l'assureur étranger (Attestation from a foreign insurer) which must be signed by the foreign health insurance company. This form can be obtained from:
