Foreign Nationals Insurance

According to the agreement between Iran Health Insurance Organization and General Directorate of Citizens and Foreign Immigrants Affairs of the Ministry of Interior and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees based in the Islamic Republic of Iran, every year a basic health insurance coverage contract is concluded in order to cover refugees and foreign nationals approved by General Directorate of Foreign Citizens and Immigrants Affairs of the Ministry of Interior. Foreign nationals are covered in vulnerable, non-vulnerable and special patients groups. Accordingly, vulnerable and special patients are covered free of charge and non-vulnerable people are covered by direct payment of premiums.

Point: From the beginning of Iranian new year (year of 1400), with the aim of providing electronic services and optimizing the conditions for providing services to the insured, the paper booklet has been omitted and inpatient and outpatient services are provided in all medical centers contracted by IHIO only by presenting the national code (national number).
