Are you living in Romania and would like to get Romanian health insurance, so you can benefit of medical care in all public hospitals and clinics? Would you also like to make sure you won’t have any potential issues with the immigration authorities, and start paying the Romanian health insurance as soon as possible?

Even if you do not currently generate taxable income that may be subject to Romanian health insurance (for example, salary income from a Romanian employer), you can get health insurance voluntarily. This means you will have to pay a fixed amount of money to the state budget under the form of health insurance contribution (CASS). For this, you will have to fulfil a few steps which include the preparation and submission of the annual tax return, and potentially do a short trip to the local Romanian National Health Insurance House.

We detail below all these steps, which will enable you to get insured in the Romanian public health system.
