Health insurance

In order to study in Germany, you need a valid health insurance. Travel health insurance is not included and is not sufficient. You cannot be enrolled without a health insurance, that is valid for your studies.
There are two types of health insurance in Germany: 

  • Statutory, public insurance
  • Private insurance (usually only for doctoral candidates)

  If you are covered by group insurance as part of a scholarship programme (for

  example DAAD), you will need confirmation from a statutory health insurance

  provider that you are exempt from statutory health insurance. 


Statutory Health Insurance

  • Students from European Union countriesan EEA state, Switzerland, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia, Turkey, Tunisia and the United Kingdom prove their health insurance by showing their European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), Global Health Insurance Card (from United Kingdom) or an eligibility from an agreement country. This is based on the social security agreements of the member states of the European Union and the European Economic Area.

Please note that your insurance may not cover all costs in Germany. You should therefore make sure that you know exactly which benefits you are entitled to in Germany before you enter the country. If you come from an EU state, EEA state, Switzerland or an agreement country, you remain insured in your home country. With your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), your Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) or your certificate of entitlement, you can go directly to a doctor in Germany. You need the machine confirmation from the statutory German health insurance in Germany that you do not have to insure yourself in Germany. Please provide the following information to a statutory German health insurance


  • Photo of EHIC/GHIC/insurance policy (front and back side)
  • Surname, first name
  • Date of birth
  • Place of birth (city, country)
  • Current address
  • Please provide the following dates of HMT Leipzig:
    Betriebsnummer 05509027 and Absendernummer H0001141
  • Students from non-EU and non-EEA countries must take out statutory health insurance until they reach the age of 30 and can be exempted from this insurance obligation by a statutory health insurance fund if they wish. This must also be reported in the course of the automatic reporting procedure between health insurance funds and universities. If you decide to take out German health insurance including nursing care insurance, please note the following:
    • Please provide the following HMT Leipzig data to the insuring health insurance company:
      Betriebsnummer 05509027 und Absendernummer H0001141.
    • All student insurance policies cost around 110 euros per month (this information was correct in June 2020).
    • Your enrolment will not be complete until you have proven that you have valid health insurance. In order to be able to take out statutory health insurance, you must present your admission letter.
  • Doctoral students, master class students or graduates who already had statutory health insurance as Bachelor's or Master's students from Germany or the EU, or who themselves come from the European Union, can also take out voluntary statutory health insurance during their doctorate. The contribution is higher than the student contribution for statutory health insurance. It starts at around 180 euros and depends on the amount of the scholarship.

Private Health Insurance


Private health insurance from other countries may be recognised in Germany. You should clarify this with your insurance company. Usually, private health insurance is suitable for everyone over the age of 30. You can also take out this insurance in Germany. Is your private insurance recognised in Germany? Then you need a confirmation for enrolment that you are exempt from compulsory statutory health insurance. For this purpose, please apply to a statutory health insurance fund for a notice of exemption from compulsory health insurance as a student.
