Health Insurance

Health Insurance - Available at University of Iceland

Everyone who has resided legally in Iceland for six months automatically becomes a member of the Icelandic social insurance system, regardless of nationality. Residency means a registered domicile based on the length of registration at Registers Iceland.

Note that the Icelandic healthcare system only subsidises health care for beneficiaries but generally does not provide services for free. For most medical services, one can expect to pay a minimal fee.
