Health insurance is the most important insurance for students when they start or are continuing their studies. Without proof of insurance from a health insurance company, you will not be allowed to enroll at any university. Enrollment always requires proof of an existing health insurance. Exception: You are from an EU / EEA country or Switzerland or there is a social security agreement with your home country (eg Turkey, Croatia, Serbia-Montenegro, Macedonia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Tunisia) and you have health insurance in your home country. You may have to submit the care order of your home health insurance. Each health insurance has approximately the same contribution for insurance including long-term care insurance. Currently this is about 75.00 euros plus 16.55 euros in long-term care insurance. However, it is only valid for students up to the 14th semester or until the age of 30. If you are not older than 23, you pay less.
