Health Insurance

All TUHH students must have valid health insurance cover and must prove that have it when they enroll.

All students are automatically under a legal obligation to take out a statutory health insurance plan. Those who want to take out private health insurance must first secure exemption from the statutory requirement. But be warned: Opt out and you will be unable to return to a statutory health insurance for the duration of your studies.

TUHH recommends the statutory health insurance to all students due to the potential additional cost of a private health insurance. Comparing premiums and the insurance cover provided is in any case always worth.

For enrollment you will need the following:

  • either a certification of insurance cover provided by a statutory health plan
  • or a certificate of exemption from the statutory insurance requirement and an insurance certificate or policy issued by your private health insurer.

If you switch your health insurer during your studies at TUHH, please notify the admissions office and send a copy of your new insurance certificate promtly.
