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:
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.
