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.

Changes in your statutory health insurance during your studies are automatically reported by the health insurance companies to the universities via the so-called student notification procedure.
Please notify the Student Services immediately of any changes in your private health insurance during your studies, together with the relevant certificates/evidence.
