Taking out insurance coverage:

You can apply for the student health insurance directly online. Within a few minutes you will receive an email containing your provisional certificate of insurance for student health insurance coverage for presentation at embassies, visa offices and authorities.
When you enroll, the university must have your insurance certificate from the statutory health insurance fund. DAK-Gesundheit automatically reports this insurance certificate to your university. If your university does not yet participate in the digital system, you will receive a paper insurance certificate.
