Coverage through the statutory Techniker Krankenkasse TK is possible for foreign students, provided they are enrolled in a specialized course of study. As a doctoral student, you are usually no longer considered a student and therefore cannot take out TK student insurance. In this case, Provisit Science is the ideal health insurance for you.
Provisit Science meets the regulatory requirements and the sum insured of the health insurance is unlimited, so it is thus above the required € 30,000. In addition, there is the possibility to insure accompanying spouses and children as well.
Provisit Science is a substitutive private comprehensive health insurance for foreign academics, doctoral students and visiting scientists up to the age of 59. It corresponds in scope to the protection of the statutory health insurance and also includes long-term care insurance. The health insurance is ideal for scientists with or without funding.
With the Protect Standard or Complete packages, you can additionally extend the insurance to include accident, liability, luggage and assistance insurance to ensure that you are fully covered during your free time and during your research work in Germany.
