Proof of Health Insurance

You will need to show proof of health insurance when enrolling if it is required in your notification of admission and you are not yet 30 years of age.


What proof is accepted?

Please note that only proof from German statutory health insurance providers can be accepted. Certificates from private health insurance providers cannot be accepted as proof.

What does the proof look like?

Please only submit a current form called the “Versicherungsbescheinigung zur Vorlage bei der Hochschule” (Proof of insurance for submission to the university). Nearly every German statutory health insurance provider will issue you this form. It typically consists of three pages or sections. To enroll, you only need to submit the first page or section.

Alternatively, you can submit an equivalent, current proof of your German statutory insurance with the following information:

  • Name and date of birth of the insured,
  • Current issuing date for the proof,
  • Company number for the health insurance provider,
  • Your insurance number if you already have it.

A copy of your health insurance card is not sufficient.

Waiver from the German statutory health insurance requirement for EU citizens

If you are a citizen of another European Union state, you can be waived from the German statutory health insurance requirement. If you have a form with the title “E 111” or a European Health Insurance Card, or if you have statutory health insurance in your home country, please go to any German statutory health insurance provider and obtain a waiver.

For non-EU citizens, the following applies:

If you have statutory or private health insurance in your home country or you have private or family health insurance in Germany, you can go to any German statutory health insurance provider to obtain a waiver.

Important information: The waiver cannot be rescinded; it applies for the entire duration of your studies in Germany.
