Health Care

Health insurance is mandatory in Germany. All international students are required to have sufficient health insurance for the complete duration of their studies in Germany. Due to IUBH regulations you can only be enroled if you can prove health insurance coverage. 
German public health insurance 
Students can choose from special offers for students under the age of 31 in Germany. These insurance plans are offered at a rate of ~79,- € per month. Although they offer slightly different services, they all cover medical treatment and partially cover medication. Due to cost-saving programmes in the public health insurance, coverage has been reduced and you may have to pay for some medical treatments yourself. 

Applying for German health insurance has to be done upon arrival in Germany.

Exception: If you are more than 30 years old you can no longer take advatage of the favourable student rates offered by the public health insurance carriers. In this case you can take advantage of our exclusive offer for international IUBH students, please see below.
