Health Insurance as a Student


I'm a student at ETH from the EU originally, and have applied for and been granted the exemption from health insurance (here and here).

My question now is, do I still need insurance form my home country? My assumption is that I don't, but the wording can be awkward at times and makes me think that maybe I do need that cover, and that this exemption just covers me from needing to take out insurance here which would be much more expensive than at home. I have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).

Re: Health Insurance as a Student

You need health insurance, either from your home country or here.

How can you have a EHIC card if you no longer have insurance?
